Applying for a Year 7 place in a normal September admission round

At Chingford Foundation School, we follow the Local Authority admissions procedure. The London Borough of Waltham Forest administer applications for entry to Year 7.  Applications are to be made through eadmissions.org.uk or the LBWF Common Application Form from 1st September until 31st October.  If your child has an older sibling on roll at the school, you still must apply.

Please note, in addition to submitting an application form to the Local Authority, you must also complete a Supplementary Information Form and send it directly to the school.

National Offer Day for Year 7 places for September 2023 is Wednesday 1st March 2023.

Children who have been unsuccessful in gaining a place for admission to Year 7 will be placed on the Local Authority Waiting List.  Any places which become available are filled in accordance with our published Admissions Arrangements.
