Applying for a junior school place

If your child was born between 1 September 2014 and 31 August 2015 you may need to apply for a junior school place for September 2022.

Starting Secondary School 2021 Before you apply

Read the School Admissions Brochure 2022 [2MB] and the Junior admissions leaflet 2022 [337KB].

The brochure contains a lot of useful information on making your application, choosing your schools, frequently asked questions and all of the schools' individual criteria and contact details.

How to apply

From the September 2021 you will be able to start completing your child's application.

All Hillingdon residents with a child in Year 2 at any infant school must submit an application. Applications can be made for up to four junior schools; however, if you only wish to transfer your child to your linked Hillingdon junior school, you only need to include one preference. 

If you choose to apply online, you must not complete a paper application as well.

Apply now

The closing date for starting Junior School applications is Saturday 15 January 2022.

If you are having difficulties making an application online please find instructions below on how to create and complete an online application.

Applications also need to be made for Hillingdon residents with pupils wishing to continue at a junior school in a different authority.

Residents of other boroughs wishing to apply for a Hillingdon junior school should contact their own local authority for details on how to make an application.

This applies to all Year 2 pupils who are:

  • currently attending an infant school in Hillingdon or a neighbouring authority; or
  • currently attending a primary school and you wish to transfer your child to a junior school in September 2022

This does not apply to Year 2 pupils who are:

  • currently attending a primary school in Hillingdon or a neighbouring authority, and you wish your child to move to year 3 in the same school; or
  • currently attending a primary school and you wish to transfer your child to a Year 3 place at a different primary school in September 2022 (an In-Year application will need to be made in this case)

Junior schools in Hillingdon give priority to pupils attending their linked infant school, but they do not reserve places for individual pupils, therefore it is very important that you apply on time to ensure you do not miss out on an offer. Applications must be made for Year 2 pupils wishing to continue in the following Hillingdon junior schools:

  • Coteford Junior School
  • Field End Junior School
  • Grange Park Junior School
  • Harefield Junior School
  • Hillside Junior School
  • Minet Junior School
  • Newnham Junior School
  • Whitehall Junior School
  • Whiteheath Junior School
  • Yeading Junior School 

Please note that from September 2021 the following schools have  amalgamated and are now all through Primary schools, therefore a starting junior school application is no longer required.

  • Lady Bankes Junior School
  • Oak Farm Junior School

Offer Day

National offer day is Tuesday 19 April 2022.
