Primary school application deadline is fast approaching

12 January 2022

The deadline for applying for a child to start primary school in September 2022 is 15 January 2022.

Use the eAdmissions website to apply online for your child’s primary (reception) or junior (year three) school place.

  • Children born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018 are due to start reception class at primary school in September 2022
  • Children born between 1 September 2014 and 31 August 2015 who currently attend an infant school are due to start year three at junior school in September 2022

You can name up to six schools in your application including academy or free schools and schools in other council areas.

You must still apply for reception class even if your child already attends the nursery at your preferred primary school.

If you do not live within the borough you need to apply for a place through your own council and you can include schools in Richmond upon Thames in your application.

The closing date is 15 January 2022.

If you have any difficulty completing your application, please contact the School Admissions Team:
