The online application process for primary or secondary school places in Hounslow is now open for September 2017.


Applications for secondary schools for September 2017 must be submitted by the end of Monday 31 October 2016. The deadline applies to secondary places for September 2017. (children born between 1 Sept 2005 and 31 Aug 2006).

For primary schools, the deadline for applications for September 2017 is by the end of Sunday 15 January 2017. The deadline applies to primary places for September 2017 (children born between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013).

Parents or guardians should note that applications received after the deadline will be considered as late. Applying later does reduce the chance of gaining a place at the preferred choice of school.

Late applications will only be processed after on-time applications.

Missing the deadline increases the risk of a child not being offered a place at one of the preferred schools of choice – even if there is already a sibling at that school.

Councillor Tom Bruce, Cabinet Member for Education and Children’s Services, Hounslow Council, said: “Last year we moved the application process completely online and it was a great success. I know many parents found it much easier and quicker, therefore enabling them to apply in time of the deadline.

“For those parents still unsure about applying online, we have help and support available to make sure they can access and use the service fully.

“We’re committed to supporting our children in getting the best education possible and the best start in life, this includes providing the services that can help provide that.”
