School admissions

​ In this section​

Due to the increasing demands for school places in Lewisham and the volume of applications the Admissions Team receives, it has become necessary to restrict the team's telephone opening hours.
As of Monday 1 September 2014, the Admissions Team will only accept calls at the following times:
Monday 9am–4pm
Tuesday to Thursday 9am–2pm
Friday 9am–midday.​

Below is the admission policy for all mainstream community nursery, schools and sixth forms in the borough and the in-year admissions arrangements. We will no longer use banding for the purposes of secondary transfer.

Any objection to these arrangements must be lodged with The Office of the Schools Adjudicator by 30 June 2015:

Mowden Hall
Staindrop Road
Darlington DL3 9BG.

Telephone: 0870 0012468.
