IN-YEAR ADMISSIONS

To make an application for a place in any year group during the academic year (an in-year admission) click on the link below.  Once an application for an in-year place has been make, children will be placed on their relevant year group waiting list according to our published admissions criteria.  Our waiting lists are maintained by Croydon Council School Admissions.  Children on waiting lists are ranked according to the priority they have under our published admissions criteria.  Waiting lists do not operate on a 'first come first served' basis; if new applicants have a higher priority, they will be ranked higher than those who have been on the list for some time.
