  • Your child is currently in Year 2 at our school and will need a junior place in September - there is no automatic transfer to Whybridge Juniors or any other junor schools.

Annual Intake for Infant Reception Classes

(and Junior Year 3 Classes)

Admissions for all Havering schools are managed by the local authority.  You must apply through them if you would like your child to attend our school.  We are bound by the local authority's policy for admissions and can not admit your child to our school independently.  The process for doing this is linked lower down this page.

  • Applications open every September
  • Applications closing deadline is mid-January (see below link for this year's exact date)
  • Places are offered in April in order of policy rankings of needs priorities (waiting lists are created for schools which may be oversubscribed)
  • Schools liaise with local authority to confirm places/ waiting lists etc
  • Schools contact the parents with offered places
  • Intake happens in the following September
