Transfer to Secondary School
Applying to secondary school for a September 2022 start
Children born between 1 September 2010 and 31 August 2011 are due to start year seven at secondary school in September 2022.
Use the eAdmissions website from 1 September to apply online for your child’s secondary school place.
You can name up to six schools in your application including academy or free schools and schools in other council areas e.g. Richmond borough schools.
The closing date for applications is 31 October 2021.
If you do not live in the borough, you need to apply through your own council and you can include Kingston schools in your application.
The Admission to Kingston's Secondary Schools guide and the Kingston schools brochure are available on the Kingston Council website. The AfC Transfer to secondary school presentation attached below takes you through the application process and answers many of the common questions.
Please note that the Kingston Council website includes schools in the Kingston borough only. For schools in the Richmond borough, please see the Richmond Council website. The application process for Richmond borough schools is also via the eAdmissions website.
If you have any questions regarding the application process, please contact the Kingston Schools Admissions team.
Information on the secondary school destinations of our 2021 Year 6 leavers is attached below.
School Open Events
Due to the current pandemic, many schools have reduced the number and capacity of in person tours or open events this year. Please check each school’s own website for further details of what they are offering to introduce prospective parents and their children to their provision, for example virtual tours or making materials available online.
