According to the council’s website, the deadline to apply to secondary schools in September 2018 is Tuesday 31 October. This crucial deadline applies for children who were born between 1 Sept 2006 and 31 August 2007.
Parents of children living in the borough must apply online or submit their application form to the School Admissions Team by the October 31 deadline. Those living elsewhere must apply to their home borough by the same date.
People who submit their school choices ahead of this month’s deadline will be told the outcome of their applications in March 2018.
Parents can find out more about Richmond’s ten state-funded secondary schools and information on how to apply in the online brochure ‘Starting Year Seven – Admission to Richmond’s Secondary Schools’.
