Applying for Secondary School
Applications for September 2022 start
Children born between 1st September 2011 and 31st August 2012 are due to start Year 7 at secondary school in September 2023.
Use the eAdmissions website from 1st September to apply online for your child’s secondary school place.
The closing date for applications is 31st October 2022.
If you do not live in the borough, you need to apply through your own council and you can include Kingston schools in your application.
If you still need to apply for a school place after the Admissions website has closed in July, please contact the School Admissions team for a paper application.

There is a booklet with information about the different types of secondary education available as well as when and how to apply for a secondary place.
