What to apply for

School places needed for the current academic year, (2017/18)

If your child doesn’t currently have a school place or you want to change their school, you can apply for an in-year place. We only process applications for Lambeth community and voluntrary-controlled schools inside Lambeth borough. For other types of schools (such as academies, voluntary-aided schools, free schools and foundation schools) and for schools in other boroughs, contact the school or the relevant local council.

For nursery places, apply directly to the nursery or school – visit the free early learning pages on the Young Lambeth website for more information.

School places for 2018/19

You can apply for your child to start or be transferred to another school for the next academic year, beginning September 2018, through the borough in which the child lives for any school anywhere in London:
