Determined admission arrangements for 2021-22
Information about the admissions policies of schools in Westminster for the 2021-22 academic year.
Published: 4 December 2020
Last updated: 13 January 2021
We’re required to set the school admission arrangements for community schools each year. School admissions arrangements for academies and voluntary aided (church) schools in the borough are made by the school’s governing body.
All schools must carry out formal consultations of not less than six weeks before they make changes to their admissions arrangements. They must publish their admissions arrangements on their school website.
School admission arrangements
For the admission year of entry that starts from September 2021, we carried out consultations between October 2019 and January 2020 and published the arrangements in March 2020.
We are the admissions authority for seven community primary schools: Barrow Hill Junior, Edward Wilson, Essendine, George Eliot, Hallfield, Robinsfield infant, Queens Park.
Pan-London coordinated schemes
The Pan-London Admission System coordinates applications to all state-funded primary and secondary schools across Greater London and surrounding counties. Parents/carers can apply up to six schools in any area using one form and list their chosen schools in order or preference. Schools will then consider each application against their published admission criteria with no knowledge of the parent/carer preference order.
The coordinated system will eliminate preferences until it reaches the highest potential offer that can be made on the National Offer Day. The system has substantially reduced the number of children that receive multiple offers or no offer at all.

How to make a complaint

Objections must be submitted by 15 May 2020.
