Applications for children to start high school in our borough are now being received. If your child was born between 1 September 2010 and 31 August 2011, he or she will be due to leave their primary school next summer and start year seven at a high school in September 2022.
The recommended date for receipt of applications is 22 October 2021 or, by the absolute latest, the final, statutory deadline is 31 October 2021.
Councillor Kamaljit Nagpal, Ealing Council’s cabinet member for a fairer start, said: “The admissions team at the council does all it can to make the application process as easy as possible for you when you are choosing a school. We recognise it is an important decision and it is important to remember that, if you find you need a bit of support, you can also visit the council’s website, contact the schools you are interested in, or speak to your child’s current school.”
To find out more about your preferred schools, you can visit the admissions pages on the council’s website or, alternatively, you can contact the schools themselves.
Each school will also be holding an open morning or evening, details of which are available to view on page 11 of the autumn edition of Around Ealing.
HOW TO APPLY
You can apply online at www.eadmissions.org.uk between 1 September and 31 October 2021.
If you are unable to apply online, you can ask your current school for an applicationform to fill in and ask it for instructions if anything is not clear. If you choose to apply online, you must not complete a paper application as well.
The Cardinal Wiseman (Catholic) and Twyford (Church of England) high schools require a supplementary information form to be completed to assess denominational commitment andthese may be obtained either from the schools themselves, or from the council website.
All new schools proposed to open in 2022/23 will be outside the co-ordinated application process.
Parents wishing to apply to those schools will need to contact the school direct and apply on the school’s application form. Parents are strongly advised to also apply for established secondary schools through the co-ordinated system because there is no guarantee at this point that the new schools will open in 2022.
Visit the admissions pages on the council’s website or you can get in touch with your preferred school.
