About the waiting list

Unsuccessful applicants are included on the school's waiting list. This includes applications that were submitted after the deadline. These applicants are ranked according to the school’s oversubscription criteria in their admission arrangements.

Your child can be in different places on a school's lists if there are different categories of places. Waiting list positions can go up as well as down. This is because waiting lists are revised if, for example, a new application is received or a child on the list moves nearer to the school.

Some Wandsworth schools operate banding or have different categories of place:

Bilingual places

Two schools (Belleville Wix and Shaftesbury Park) each have a bilingual class and an English class. In both classes the children will follow the English curriculum but in the bilingual class the curriculum is be delivered in French for a proportion of the time.

Applicants can, if they wish, express a preference to be admitted into the bilingual or English-only class. Places are allocated on the basis of the schools’ admission criteria. The waiting list position shown for these schools is within the respective category of place.

Faith-based places

Many church or other faith-based schools offers places to children of families who are practising members of a Christian church or other faith. Seven faith-based schools also offers open places based on the school’s admission criteria without reference to faith. These schools are:

  • Gatton Primary School (Muslim)
  • Mosaic Jewish Primary School
  • St Anne’s CE Primary School
  • St Faith’s CE Primary School
