Before you apply

Did you know that in 2019, Islington secondary schools were in the top third of schools nationally for progress at GCSE?

Watch this short video for information about how to complete the application process and what to think about before submitting your school choices.

You can apply for up to six schools: we recommend that you do this. Don’t just apply for one or two schools.

Don’t include private schools in your application.

You can check your home to school distance to any Islington school using your local area.
