Schools admissions

Secondary school admissions

Whether your child wants to go on to university, an apprenticeship or a job, the high quality teaching and supportive environment at Camden's secondary schools aims to help them 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.

  • Applications for Year 7 places in September 2017 have now closed. You will be informed of the result on 1 March 2017.

Primary school admissions

Camden has some of the 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

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.
