Reception 2021 Applications
If your child was born between 1st of September 2016 and 31st of August 2017 they are now eligible for a reception place. Applications for reception must be made by the 15th of January 2021 and must be done through the Hillingdon School Admissions Team. Applications can be done online at www.hillingdon.gov.uk/schooladmissions or by phone by calling 01895556644. As this date has now passed you can still make late applications but spaces will be limited.
Accepting the place - If parents applied online you should accept online by logging back into your e-admissions account.
For paper applicants you have 3 acceptance options; accept online on the www.hillingdon.gov.uk/schooladmissions site, by email or over the phone on 01895 556644.
Declining the offer - We advise all parents to accept the offer that has been given to ensure their child has a school place for September. If parents do want to decline they must give reasons why and advise what school arrangements they will be making for their child. Any children who have not accepted and made no alternative education arrangements will be referred to the Participation Team once they statutory school age.
Appeals - Parents are allowed to appeal a school's decision. Full details on how this can be done can be found on the Gov.uk official website: https://www.gov.uk/schools-admissions/appealing-a-schools-decision
