25th October: closing date for secondary school applications
18/10/2013 17:59:00


If, like me, you have a child who is due to start secondary school next September, be warned that the closing date for applications for places is Friday 25th October.

You need to make sure that you meet the admissions criteria for the schools you choose, as each school will use its criteria to decide whether they can offer your son or daughter a place. I would strongly advise you to list a full set of six preferences - each year, I deal with constituents who only put down their top choice and, having not got that, end up with somewhere miles away.

Step-by-step guidance is available at www.croydon.gov.uk/admissions.
