Schools admissions

Secondary school admissions

Camden's secondary schools aim to help your child reach their potential whatever they want to do in adult life.

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.

  • The next deadline to apply for Year 7 places will be 31 October 2018.
  • You can visit Camden secondary schools on their open days and evenings - 2018 open events poster (PDF)
  • Meet the Parents also holds informal forums for primary parents at local schools across the borough.

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.
