Applications have now closed
Applications must still be submitted but will be considered as late. Late applications will be processed after the first allocation of places to on-time applicants on 16 April 2018.
If there is a good reason why you could not make your application on time, such as moving into Hounslow after the closing date of 15 January 2018, bereavement, hospitalisation or serious illness and you believe your application should be considered as ‘on time’, please submit your application and provide evidence to support the reasons for your late application. This must be submitted by 8 February 2018.
Before making your application
- read our ‘Starting School in Hounslow’ brochure. This gives you full information on the application process.
- check how primary places were allocated last year
- read the eAdmissions guidance leaflet
If you do not live in the London Borough of Hounslow, you will need to apply through your own council.
