Primary and Secondary Admissions

Parents and carers of children in Nursery and Year 6 are now able to apply for their choices of Primary and Secondary schools.

You can apply for schools in any area, however if you live in Royal Greenwich you must apply through them. If you live in another borough, you will need to apply through your home authority even if you wish to apply for a place in a Royal Greenwich school.


The easiest way to apply is through the eAdmissions portal – it's quick, easy and secure and it's the fastest way to hear the results. For guidance on how to make an online application please visit the eAdmissions website at

If you'd rather complete a paper form and you live in Royal Greenwich, you must use the Royal Borough of Greenwich's common application form.

Please note: The closing date for Primary School applications:

·       Monday 15th January 2018

The closing date for Secondary School applications:

·       Tuesday 31st October
