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 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 online system or paper application form.
The closing date for September 2014 application was 15 January 2014.
Any application received after the closing date will be processed as late. Submitting a late application can greatly reduce your child’s chance of obtaining a place at one of your preferred schools.
If you missed the deadline, please submit a reception class common application form as soon as possible. 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.
The online facility is no longer available for late applications.
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.
Applying for a faith-based school
If you are applying for a faith-based school, you must complete the school’s Supplementary Information Form (SIF), in addition to Hounslow’s form. You can download these forms for a school in Hounslow from our applying to faith-based schools page.
If you require specific advice or further information, we strongly recommended that you contact us early in the process rather than leaving your enquiry until later.
