Starting secondary school from September 2018

If your child is due to start year 6 next term, you will need to be thinking about which secondary schools that you would like to apply for.

Our 'Hints and tips' leaflet sets out some basic information and includes open days for all Westminster secondary schools. Visiting information and banding dates for all secondary schools in Westminster, Hammersmith & Fulham, and Kensington & Chelsea is also available.

A presentation has been prepared to dispel some common myths, provide an overview of the process and assist you in making realistic preferences. Separate presentations are provided for those living in the North or South of Westminster. Where relevant, distance cut-off maps are provided.

The annual  'Your choice for secondary education' (PDF, 2MB) brochure is now available; it contains more detailed guidance on the process and the summarised admissions criteria for all secondary schools in Westminster.

If you have access to an email account you should submit your application online. The eAdmissions website  opened on 1 September for online applications.

The closing date for applications is 31 October 2017 and the National Offer day is 1 March 2018.
