Reception, junior, secondary transfer and 14-19 applications

Parents or carers who are residents in Lambeth but wish to apply for a school maintained by another borough, still need to apply using either:

  • Lambeth’s online eAdmissions portal
  • a paper Common Application Form. You can return this to the Lambeth School Admissions Team for reception, junior, secondary transfer and 14-19 applications.

All boroughs produce a booklet, which gives full details of schools, entry tests and any Supplementary Information Forms that are required to be submitted with your application.

In-year applications

In regard to in-year applications, parents or carers who are residents in Lambeth but wish to apply for a school maintained by another borough need to check how that borough processes applications. This is because there are variations. Some are dealt with by the borough where the school is, others by the school itself, and some by a mixture of the two.
