Reception, junior, secondary transfer and 14-19 applications

Parents/carers who are residents in Lambeth but wish to apply for a school maintained by another borough still need to still need to apply on Lambeth’s online or paper Common Application Form and return it to the Lambeth School Admissions Team for reception, junior, secondary transfer and 14-19 applications. All boroughs produce a booklet, which gives full details of schools, entry tests and any Supplementary Information Forms that are required to be submitted with your application.

In-Year applications

In regards to In-Year applications, parents/carers who are residents in Lambeth but wish to apply for a school maintained by another borough need to check how that borough processes applications. This is because there are variations; some are dealt with by the borough where the school is, others by the school itself, or a mixture of the two.
