Children are added to the school admissions waiting list according to published admission arrangements. If they are added to the waiting list, their position is not static, which means they can be moved up or down the waiting list. If a school place becomes available which we are able to offer to your child, we will let you know.
The school waiting list is managed as follows:
- waiting lists for in-year applications are available from 10 days after the application has been submitted
- waiting lists for reception applications starting in September 2019 are available from 17 April
- waiting lists for secondary transfer starting in September 2019 are available from 2 March
In- year applications waiting list
The waiting list for in-year applications is currently closed and will re-open from 26 August 2020.
If you would like your child to start a new school in September 2020 and you want them to be added to the waiting list, you will need to complete the in-year application form. You will need to submit your application by 16 August 2020. If you do not submit your application by this date, your child’s name will be removed from any current waiting lists in Harrow.
You do not need to complete the in-year application form, if you have already applied:
- for your child to start reception class in September 2020 via the eAdmissons website
- for your child to start secondary school in September 2020 via the eAdmissions website
The application will be considered within the new academic year.
