Secondary School Admissions

Secondary School Admissions covers those pupils starting at either a:

  • Middle school at the beginning of Year 5
  • Secondary school at the beginning of Year 7
  • Upper school at the beginning of Year 9

You must apply for entry into these schools via your home authority. RBWM residents must apply for non-RBWM schools through the RBWM application process. Full details of the process are available in the relevant Guide to Secondary Schools published below.

Applications can be made online, via our Online Admissions page. Paper application forms are not available to download on this website but may be requested by contacting the Admissions Team or visiting your local council offices if you are unable to make an online application.

Application reminder letters will be sent automatically during the first week of the September term to RBWM residents whose children attend RBWM schools and are due to transfer at the end of the academic year.

For RBWM residents whose children attend either an independent school, non-RBWM school or who wish their child to move from one tier system to another, all information you need in order to make an application is available below in the Guide to Secondary Schools. Please contact the Admissions Team if you need any further assistance.

Applying to Grammar Schools

All schools in the Royal Borough are comprehensive and meet the needs of all ability ranges. This means they do not require entrance exams as a form of entry. Grammar schools are available in neighbouring authorities. If you wish your child to apply for a grammar school then you must make an application via the RBWM admissions process. We recommend that you discuss this first with their current headteacher and also contact any grammar schools you are interested in to ensure that you have all the necessary information. Your child will be required to sit an entrance exam. In order to enter your child into the relevant entrance exam you should also contact the relevant local authority under which the Grammar school lies in the Summer term prior to making an application. We will then correspond with the relevant authority dealing with admissions to that school who will inform us if a place can be offered or not.
