Admission for entry from September 2018 (2018/19 academic year)

Please find the following document 'Starting Secondary School' which gives details about our school admissions.

In addition, please note the following guidance for parents and carers:

  1. Attending open evening
  • Parent/carers should  attend as many open evening as possible not just those of the schools they are thinking of naming as a preference.  What they experience may result in different schools being preferred.
  1. Promoting online applications
  • Electronic receipt is issued on submission of a completed application.
  • No postal problems which can lead to an application going astray or arriving after the closing date which means it will be processed as 'late'.
  • Facility to easily change application information up to the PAN London closing dates.
  • No concerns with regard to misinterpretation of handwriting.
  • Outcome of application can be accessed on-line on national offer day, rather than waiting for letter which cannot be posted until offer day.
  1. Deadlines
  • Tuesday 31 October 2017  - national closing day and deadline for applying on-line and for paper applications to be received by Pupil Services
  • Friday 20 October 2017 -  deadline for any paper applications to be received by the school ready for dispatch to Pupil Services at Dockside.   
  • Tuesday 31 October 2017 - deadline for the supplementary information forms (SIF) for St. Angela's and St. Bonaventure's.  


  1. Checking their application and applying by the closing date
  • Reminders must be given to all families regarding the importance of checking their application before submission especially for sibling details
  • Families must be reminded of the closing date and its importance – as a late application significantly reduces your chances of gaining a place in a preferred school.  In Newham historically most schools have all their places offered before late applicants are considered.
  1. School access to the Pan London eAdmissions portal applications information
  • All schools should regularly check for submission of eAdmissions for their pupils.
  • As last year Tony Alvares will send you details of how you access this information so you can continue to monitor your applications. 
  1. Prize Draw
  • All Newham families who apply using the Pan London eAdmissions portal will be automatically included in a prize draw for a school uniform – 5 winners (see the Newham Magazine for photo’s of this years winners)
