We know, that for parents/carers and children, getting a school place can be stressful.

That’s why we want to ensure that the allocation of school places – to schools that are among the very best in the country and continue to improving teaching and learning – is clear, objective and fair.

There are no major changes to the admissions arrangements and numbers for Lambeth community schools and Oasis Academy Johanna for 2019/2020, but more aspects connected to admissions have been included.

If you are a parent/carer, registered early years provider, member of a governing body, a diocesan representative (or other religious authority), an admission authority in another borough, a member of school staff or just have an interest in our proposed admission arrangements we want to hear from you.

Take a look at our proposed admission arrangements and tell us what you think – anytime up to midnight on 15 January 2018 – by:

We’ll consider all the comments we receive when determining our final admission arrangements by 28 February 2018.

Other Lambeth schools may be undertaking consultations this year, please check their websites for more information.
