Starting Year Seven in 2016

If your child was born between 1 September 2004 and 31 August 2005 they will be due to start secondary school in September 2016. You will need to apply for a place for your child by 31 October 2015. You must apply for a school place using an Islington application form, even if you are applying for a place in another local authority.

If you do not live in Islington, you must apply using your home local authority’s form (i.e. the council to whom you pay your council tax).

Key dates

  • 1 September 2015 – online applications open
  • 31 October 2015 – application deadline

How to apply?
