Hounslow Council


Primary school admissions

Parents of children born between 1 September 2009 and 31 August 2010 must apply for a reception place for September 2014.

You must apply directly to the council in which you permanently live, even if you are applying for schools in another borough. Please note we do not process applications for independent fee paying schools. If you do not live in Hounslow, please apply using your home council’s application form.

Late applications

The closing date for September 2014 application was 15 January 2014.

Any application received after the closing date will be processed as late and the outcome will be notified to you after 2 June 2014.

If you missed the deadline, please submit a Reception class Common Application Form as soon as possible. The online facility is no longer available for late applications. The form is available to download from this page, or can be collected in person from the civic centre between 9am – 4pm.  Please ensure you submit this form with a copy of your council tax bill for the current year as proof of your address.

We advise all parents to read our Starting School in Hounslow 2014 brochure before making an application. The brochure, which you can download from this page, gives you full information on the application process.
