Kensington Primary School

Primary to Secondary

Choosing the right Secondary school for your child is very important. 

Starting Secondary School September 2024

If your child was born between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013, you will need to apply for year 7 secondary school place for September 2024. You can apply for a secondary school place for September 2024 through the eAdmissions website from 1 September 2023.

If your child lives in Newham you will need to apply via London Borough of Newham. But if your child lives outside Newham, but you want him or her to go to school in Newham, you will need to apply through the local authority in the borough you live in.
We recommend that the families of all of our year 6 pupils attend as many of the Open Days and Open Evening at the schools across Newham before making a decision what schools to name as a preference.

To maximise your opportunities of getting a place at one of your preferred secondary schools name six schools with at least one being you local school.

Remember, you must apply for a place, even if your child:

  • Has a brother or sister attending the school;
  • Lives in the school's priority area (for Sarah Bonnell only)
  • Attends a link school (for Stratford School Academy only)

The national closing date for on time year 7 applications is 31st October 2023. (If you haven't applied before the closing date you should still apply as soon as possible.)

National offer date for on time year 7 applicants is 1st March 2024
