Apply to transfer to Secondary School

When will I get the results and how to accept my offer

Hounslow residents who applied on time will receive an email during the evening of Tuesday 1 March 2022 advising of the outcome of their application.

Please wait until you have received the email before logging onto the eAdmissions website

Emails will be staggered from 5pm onwards, so exact timings cannot be guaranteed.


If you have been offered your first preference school,  you will only receive the email notification.

If you have not been offered your first preference school, you will receive the email notification and a letter, sent by first class post on 1 March, giving you more information about the process.

What you need to do after 1 March 2022?

  • Accept your school place online by Tuesday 15 March 2022.  To do this click on the “REPLY” button at the bottom of the e-Admissions email.  This will take you to the e-Admissions website;
    •  Login with your username and password
    •  Accept your school place
    •  Make sure you submit your response
  • If you have not been offered your preferred school, you should still accept this school place.  Accepting this place does not affect your chances of being offered a place at another school from the waiting list or your right of appeal.  You can decline this place later once you have a secured a place at another school. Declining the offer will not increase the chances of your child being offered a place at your preferred school.
  • You should not decline the school place offered unless you have already secured a place at another school or made alternative arrangements for your child’s education e.g. private education.  You will need to provide this information with your response.

Your right to appeal

If your child has not been offered a place at one of your preferred schools, you have the right to appeal to an independent appeal panel.

You can only lodge an appeal if you have;

  • received notification that we have not been able to offer you the school of your preference
  • listed the school on your application form

Appeal forms and more information about appeals can be found of on our School Appeals webpage.

The closing date for secondary appeals is 30 March 2022..
