    Admissions Process

    Your nearest or preferred school may not be in your home borough.  When choosing schools, you should consider the distance from your home as this is a key factor when secondary schools are allocated. You will be asked to list up to six schools, and you should list the schools in order of preference.

    It is important that you apply for a secondary school through your home borough.
