Starting Secondary School - Your Guide to Secondary Schools in Newham

Moving from Primary to Secondary School in September 2020

If your child was born between 1 September 2008 and 31 August 2009, you will need to apply for a secondary school place for September 2020.

If your child lives in Newham you will need to apply via London Borough of Newham. But if your child lives outside Newham, but you want him or her to go to school in Newham, you will need to apply through the local authority in the borough you live in.

We recommend that the families of all of our year 6 pupils attend as many of the Open Days and Open Evening at the schools across Newham before making a decision what schools to name as a preference.

To maximise your opportunities of getting a place at one of your preferred secondary schools name six schools with at least one being your local school.

Remember, you must apply for a place, even if  your child has a brother or sister attending the school.

Fair Access

The law requires that each local authority must have a Fair Access Protocol (FAP), agreed with the majority of schools in its area to ensure that for In Year admissions unplaced children, especially the most vulnerable, are offered a place at a suitable school as quickly as possible.  In agreeing a protocol, the local authority must ensure that no school - including those with available places - is asked to take a disproportionate number of children who have been excluded from other schools, or who have challenging behaviour. Forest Gate Community School has signed up to the LB Newham’s Fair Access Protocol.
