Published: Thursday 26th October 17

Parents in Wandsworth are being reminded that they only have a few days left to submit their applications for a secondary school place next year.

To obtain a September 2018 secondary school place – parents must apply by next Tuesday, October 31.

This crucial deadline applies to children who were born between September 1, 2006 and August 31, 2007.

Parents can find out more about Wandsworth’s 11 state-funded secondary schools and helpful information on how to apply for a place by reading the council’s 'Choose a Wandsworth Secondary School' brochure.

The brochure and more information outlining the simple and easy-to-follow application process can also be found on the council’s website. Parents and carers who want to make an online application will find a link to the e-admissions website on this page.

Copies of the brochure can also be obtained by emailing or by telephoning (020) 8871 7316. Staff on that number can also help with any queries parents and carers may have

Parents of children living in the borough must apply online or submit their application form to Wandsworth Town Hall by Tuesday’s deadline. Those living elsewhere must apply to their home borough on or before October 31.

People who submit their school choices before next week’s deadline will be told the outcome of their applications in March 2018.

Those who apply online, using the secure and confidential pan-London admissions website, will receive helpful tips and prompts as they go through the process.

Applications can be edited and amended as often as parents choose right up to the deadline and each time it is completed parents will receive an email notification confirming the application has been properly received and registered.
