In-Year Common Application Form Part A (iCAF Part A)

Use the link above to apply for Lambeth community schools, regardless of which borough the child lives in.

In addition to the online In-Year Common Application Form Part A (iCAF Part A), if your child is on the register of a London state school, you and a senior member of staff there will need to complete the Lambeth In-Year Common Application Form Part B form and attach it to your application before submission.

Please also make sure that you attach the required proof of address and date of birth documents mentioned on the next page to the online form before you submit it, for the application to be complete.

The Lambeth In-Year Common Application Form Part B and proof of date of birth documents can also be sent to the Lambeth School Admissions Team separately, if you are unable to attach them to your online application.

If you can't apply online

There will be a very limited amount of paper iCAF Part As for applying for a place at Lambeth community schools and Oasis Academy Johanna. Alternatively a soft copy of the form can be emailed to you. These are only for use in previously agreed exceptional circumstances.

Completed forms will need to be submitted to the Lambeth School Admissions Team with the required proof of address and date of birth documentation mentioned on the next page. These items can be sent by post, by email or via scanning facilities in the Lambeth Customer Centre. You will need an appointment for the latter.
