Admission to Camden schools
Nursery admissions are dealt with by primary schools, children's centres and other nursery providers in Camden and parents should apply to these directly.
We co-ordinate admission for reception places at Camden primary schools and provide advice on transfers, vacancies and appeals.

In-year school admissions
An in-year application is when you need to make an application to a school outside of the normal admissions round and at a time when your child should already be attending school. Camden schools administer in-year admissions themselves.
