Schools admissions

Secondary school admissions

Whether it's a place at a top university, an excellent apprenticeship or landing a great job, the excellent teaching and supportive environment at Camden's secondary schools aims to help every student reach their potential.

The Council co-ordinates the transfer from primary to secondary school for admission to all Camden state secondary schools. Find out more about Camden secondary schools in our annual guide.

You can apply online from 1 September 2016 until 31 October 2016. All of our schools organise open days and evenings in September and October and we recommend you attend those before applying.

Meet The Parents also holds informal forums for primary parents at local schools across the borough.

Primary school admissions

Camden has some of the very best primary schools in the country. We co-ordinate admission for reception places at Camden primary schools and provide advice on transfers, vacancies and appeals

The deadline for applying for September 2016 reception places was 15 January 2016. If you applied online, you will be able to see the results of your application on the evening of 18 April 2016.

Nursery admissions

Nursery admissions are dealt with by primary schools, children centres and other nursery providers in Camden and parents should apply to these directly.
