Admission to Camden schools

Nursery admissions

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

Primary school reception admissions

We co-ordinate admission for reception places at Camden primary schools. We also provide advice on transfers, vacancies and appeals.

Secondary school transfer

Camden 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 deadline to apply for Year 7 places for September 2022 will be 31 October 2021
  • Meet the Parents holds informal forums for primary parents at local schools across the borough. 

In-year school admissions

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