15 May 2020 : you must send in any appeals by this date. You can appeal even if you’ve accepted the school place offered.

Late applications

If we get your application after 15 January 2020 then your application will be marked as late. This means that it will not be considered until we have allocated school places for all applications received on time. This could reduce your chances of getting a place at the school you want.

If there are exceptional reasons why it was not possible to make your application by the deadline, please email us at admissions@islington.gov.uk Make sure to attach any letters or other documents that help explain and support your reason.
