Apply for an infant, junior or primary school place (September intake)

How to apply

Applications for September 2017 start

Children born between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013 are due to start reception class at primary school in September 2017.

Children born between 1 September 2009 and 31 August 2010 who currently attend an infant school are due to start year three at junior school in September 2017.  

The closing date for applications was 15 January 2017.

Still need to apply?

If you live within the borough and still need to apply because you missed the deadline or recently moved to the area, you can still apply online for your child's primary (reception) or junior (year three) school place using the eAdmissions website. 

You will need to apply by 10 February 2017.

You can name up to six schools in your application including academy or free schools and schools in other council areas. 

Please note: you must still apply for reception class even if your child already attends the nursery at your preferred primary school.  

If you do not live in the borough, you need to apply through your own council and you can include Kingston schools in your application. 

When making your application in eAdmissions you should:

  • Complete a separate application for each child if you are applying for twins or triplets.
  • Tell us in your application if your child has a brother or sister (sibling) attending your preferred school(s) in September 2017.

Things to check: 

  • Certain schools need additional information to apply their admissions criteria and may require you to also complete a Supplementary Information Form. For example, schools that prioritise applications by faith. If you are applying for this type of school, please check the school's website for further information and to download a Supplementary Information Form.
  • If your child has a Statement of Special Education Needs (SEN) or an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), you don't need to complete the application – see our information about Special Educational Needs (SEN).

Be fully informed before you apply 

Read our admissions brochure before you apply. If you have any difficulty completing your application, please contact the School Admissions Team.
