Secondary school admissions

Whether it's a place at a top university, an excellent apprenticeship or landing a great job, the excellent teaching and supportive environment at Camden's secondary schools aims to help every student reach their potential.

The Council co-ordinates the transfer from primary to secondary school for admissions to all Camden state secondary schools.

Information about Camden secondary schools is available in our annual guide, available via the link above. You can apply online from 1 September 2015 until 31 October 2015.  All of our schools organise open days and evenings during September and October and we recommend you attend those before applying:


Primary school admissions

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

Camden has some of the very best primary schools in the country. The deadline for applying for September 2016 reception places is 15 January 2016. You can apply online from 1 September 2015.


Nursery admissions

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


Consultation on admissions to schools for September 2016

Camden is required to consult each year on a scheme to co-ordinate admissions and proposed arrangements for community schools.

Included in the document (see link below) are some changes you should particularly note regarding Kingsgate Primary School, which is due to expand from two forms of entry to four. The school will then be divided into an infant site (Liddell Road) and junior site (Kingsgate Road).

Views are sought on the following measuring point options (for the distance criterion of the admissions policy):
1. To retain the measuring point of the school (under the distance criterion) at the Kingsgate Road site.
2. To move the measuring point to the Liddell Road site.
3. Any other options that local people would like to propose.

Also included in the document below are the proposed arrangements for the following voluntary aided schools in Camden who have submitted them to us to circulate:  St Aloysius’ Catholic Juniors, St Paul’s CofE Primary, Maria Fidelis Catholic School, Camden School for Girls and the UCL Academy.

Sixth form arrangements for LaSwap Sixth Form Consortium and Haverstock School are also included.

If you have any comments, please complete the consultation response sheet in the document or email stuart.berwick@camden.gov.uk by 6 March 2015.
