Admission to Camden schools

Nursery admissions

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

Reception admissions

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

Secondary 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 is 31 October 2019
  • You can visit Camden secondary schools on their own open days and evenings - download a poster here (PDF)
  • Meet the Parents also holds informal forums for primary parents at local schools across the borough.

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.
