Chingford Foundation School



Applications - Year 7 to 11

Applications for Year 7 in September 2020

The London Borough of Waltham Forest will be administering applications for entry to Year 7 using and the LBWF Common Application Form.  The closing date for applications is 31st October 2019.  Offers of places will be made on 2nd March 2020.  

PLEASE NOTE: In addition to submitting an Application Form to your Local Authority, you MUST also complete a SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION FORM and post directly to the school by 31st October 2019.

The intake for Year 7 September 2020 will be 270.

Further note: The London Borough of Waltham Forest takes very seriously any attempt to gain an advantage in the admissions process by giving false information.

It is really important that the admissions system is fair for everybody. Nobody should be allowed to cheat by using a friend or relative’s address, a business address or by temporarily renting a property near to a popular school. Each year a number of parents try to get a school place by providing false information, which could result in them taking a place that should have gone to another child.

The Local Authority will investigate all instances where a parent is thought to have provided false or misleading information in order to gain admission to a school. Your address will be checked by reference to various records and, if necessary, by a council officer visiting the application address.

A false application may, in addition to possible prosecution, lead to the withdrawal of your child’s place in the school applied for, even if the child has already started school.

In-Year admissions are administered directly by Chingford Foundation School.  If you wish to apply for a place in the current Year 7-11 you must apply directly to the school, using the In-Year Application Form which can be downloaded below.
