Each Hounslow school aims to provide the best possible education for your child. Education spending has been increased over recent years and Hounslow Council has a firm commitment to excellent education, enabling the schools to encourage children to develop to their full potential.

Councillor Tom Bruce, Cabinet Member for Education, Children and Youth Services, Hounslow Council, said: “Applications received after the deadline of 15 January will only be dealt with once those which were received on time have been processed. I would urge parents not to miss the deadline because they are reducing the chances of their child being offered a place at their preferred school.”

"I would also urge parents to use all their preferences of schools on the application form. It’s not a good idea to only list your first choice of school because many schools do not have places for everyone who applies to them. We therefore need to know where else you might like your child to attend.”
