Apply for a secondary school place

If your child is due to start secondary school, you must apply online

Dates and deadlines

You can apply from 1 September 2016, and you must apply by the deadline, 31 October 2016. We recommend you apply by 21 October 2016, just in case there are any problems with getting online or logging into the site.

30 November 2016: this is your deadline to submit a social medical application

1 March 2017: you’ll get an offer by email in the evening 

15 March 2017: this is your deadline to accept (or turn down) your school place  

1 April 2017: you must send in any appeals for an Islington community school by this date. You can appeal even if you’ve accepted the school place offered. 

Late applications 

If we get your application after 31 October 2016 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 Make sure to attach any letters or other documents that help explain and support your reason.
