Nursery admissions are dealt with by primary schools, children's centres and other nursery providers in Camden. Parents should apply to these directly.
Primary school reception admissions
We co-ordinate admission for reception places at Camden primary schools. We also provide advice on transfers, vacancies and appeals.
Secondary school transfer
Camden Council co-ordinates the transfer from primary to secondary school for admission to all Camden state secondary schools. Find out more about Camden secondary schools in our annual guide.
Applications for Year 7 places for September 2025 will open on 1 September 2024. The deadline to apply for Year 7 places will be 31 October 2024.
In-year school admissions
An in-year application is when you make an application to a school outside of the normal admissions round. This is at a time when your child should already be attending school. Camden schools organise in-year admissions themselves.
Social or medical applications for Camden community schools
Find out more about this and how to apply for a school place on these grounds. See our policy and form:
