Applications for children to start at any of the high schools in our borough are now being received. Find out how to apply – and where to find out more.
If your child was born between 1 September 2011 and 31 August 2012, he or she will be due to leave their primary school next summer and start year seven at a high school in September 2023.
The recommended date for receipt of applications is 21 October 2022 or, by the absolute latest, the final, statutory deadline is 31 October 2022.
Councillor Kamaljit Nagpal, Ealing Council’s cabinet member for a fairer start, said: “Choosing which school your child will attend is a big decision and the applications process can sometimes feel daunting. The council’s admissions team do all they can to make the application process as easy as possible, however, we recognise it is an important decision, so if you require support please 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 download as a full list here.
HOW TO APPLY
You can apply online between 1 September and 31 October 2022. If you are unable to apply online, you can ask your current school for an application form 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 and these may be obtained either from the schools themselves, or from the admissions pages on the council’s website.
All new schools proposed to open in 2023 will be outside the co-ordinated application process. Parents wishing to apply to these 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 2023.
Visit the admissions pages on the council’s website or you can get in touch with your preferred school.
