Changes to service due to COVID-19

Please be aware that the majority of the School Admissions Team are working from home. 

If you have a query, please read our answers to frequently asked questions, as the information provided may resolve it for you.

Due to the high volume of emails the School Admissions Team continues to receive, we ask that you do not contact the team multiple times with the same query so that they can concentrate on their core duties. However, if your query is urgent, please email it and make sure to include your telephone number.

Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time.

Due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, please note the following:

School Open Events

Schools may have changed their open events and tours may be virtual, therefore you are advised to check each school’s website for updated information in advance.

Selective Schools (Grammar Schools)

If your child is due to sit a grammar school test such as Tiffin School or The Tiffin Girls’ School, it is important that you visit the school’s website for updated information on test arrangements. 

If your child sits a selective school test and the results are not available by the closing date 31 October 2020, you will be able to add or remove selective school preferences, and change the order of listed schools in your application, to a maximum of six preferences by 10 December 2020.

Important: if you are a resident in another borough, any changes to your application can only be made through your home local authority. Please contact your home local authority for further information and advice.
