In year admissions

In year admissions 2023/24 (Current academic year – also known as, mid-term or mid-phase admissions)

If a family arrives in Newham during the school year 2023/24 and their child needs a school place they must complete an In Year form naming their preferred schools.

In year admissions (also known as mid-phase or mid-term admissions)

School places are usually offered within 10 days.

The place offered may not be at the school the family prefers as that school may not have a suitable place available.

Supplementary Information Form (SIF)
As part of our admission arrangements we require a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) if an applicant wants their child to be consider under our faith based criteria (priority groups). If an applicant does not complete and submit a SIF or does not want to be considered under our faith based criteria (priority groups) the child will be automatically added to the lowest priority group when we rank the applications.

A SIF is not an application form so cannot be considered unless an application is made. Please submit your SIF to
