Admission Drop in Sessions
If you need support with your application, please attend one of our drop in sessions being held at the Civic Centre, Lampton Road, Hounslow, TW3 4DN. The School Admissions Team will be available to help with the online application process.
Drop in sessions will be held every Wednesday at 12pm – 3pm from 4 October 2017 – 10 January 2018.
Supplementary Information Forms
Some schools (such as faith schools) require the completion of the school's Supplementary Information Form (SIF) in addition to Hounslow's Common Application Form (on-line application). Further information can be found on the Primary School Supplementary Information form page.
Submitting a late application greatly reduces your chance of getting a place at one of your preferred school. If you miss the 15 January 2018 deadline, please contact us as soon as possible to request a late application. Late applications will be processed after the first allocation of places to on-time applicants on 16 April 2018.
