Camden Schools, bright furture

Whether it's a place at a top university, an excellent apprenticeship or landing a great job, the high quality teaching and supportive environment at Camden's secondary schools aims to help every student reach their potential. Read and download our guide to secondary schools in Camden and how to apply for a place:

If your child was born between 1 September 2006 and 31 August 2007 they will be due to start secondary school in September 2018. You can apply online for a Year 7 place from September 2017. The closing date for applications will be 31 October 2017.

School open days and evenings

  • All of our schools hold open days and evenings during September and October. We recommend you attend these to see the schools for yourself before applying. 
  • Come to our Moving On to Secondary School event at the Camden Centre, in Bidborough Street WC1H 9AU, on Thursday 14th September 2017, from 3:30 to 6:30pm. Note: this event is for adults rather than children and children attending are your sole responsibility. Please book your free place in advance here.
  • Meet the Parents also holds informal forums for primary parents at local schools across the borough.
