Secondary Transfer

Secondary Transfer


If you’re a Southwark resident, you must apply online for a secondary school place. If you live in another borough, you must complete the admission application for the borough in which you live even if you’d like to apply for a school in Southwark.

Online school admission applications are quick and easy to complete. All you need is an email address to register with eAdmissions, which takes about five minutes. You can apply through this website:

When you’ve completed your online application, you must submit it by the closing date of 31 October 2018 by 11.59pm. The online application will not be valid unless it is submitted by this time and date.

To submit your online application you must click on the ‘submit application’ button. Once you’ve submitted your online application, the system will show as ‘submitted’ with the date, time and version number of the submitted application.

You’ll also receive an email with a unique application reference number confirming that your application has been submitted. If you don’t receive an email, submit your application again as it will not have been submitted successfully.

If you need further assistance with the applications, please do not hesitate to see the office for help.
