Apply for a secondary school place for 2022-23

Use this guide to help you when applying for a secondary school place for the 2022 – 23 academic year

Proof of address and child’s date of birth

When you apply for a school place you'll need to provide proof of your address and your child's date of birth.

You must upload the correct documents for you and your child to the eAdmissions website, even if you are applying late.

If you've filled in a paper form, you must include these documents when you submit your application.

Without this documentation, your child’s application may be withdrawn and no offer made at a school.

To ensure that you provide what is needed, please take a look at the required documents list.

Change of details

If you move address after submitting your application, you must tell us so we can contact you if we need more information, or to tell you the result of your application.

To tell us about your change of address, you'll need to fill in our school admissions change of address form and provide proof of your new address for you and your child.

You will also need to tell us if you have a change of medical circumstances or if a sibling starts at a preferred school. You can do this by sending an email to the school admissions team at schooladmissions@lambeth.gov.uk.

Changes to preferences after the deadline for on-time applications are not permitted.
