Application by Lewisham residents for places in the reception class and years 1 - 6 is via an ‘In-Year Common Application Form’ processed centrally by the Lewisham Admissions and Appeals Team. A hard copy of the form is available from the school office or you can download it below. Non-Lewisham residents wishing to apply for a Lewisham primary school will need to do so via their own borough’s In-Year Common Application Form. The form will then be forwarded to Lewisham Admissions, 3rd Floor Laurence House, Catford, London SE6 4RU.
