In-Year Admissions

Hatcham Free School will operate a waiting list for applications submitted for years other than the normal year of entry.  The school will consider all such applications and if the year group applied for has a place available, admit the child unless one of the permitted reliefs applies.  If more applications are received than there are places available, the over-subscription criteria for primary school shall apply.

The waiting list will operate until the end of the academic year. If, at the end of the academic year parents wish their children to be considered for entry to the subsequent year group, they will be required to apply afresh.

The school participates in Lewisham LA’s In Year Fair Access Protocol and children may be prioritised over those children on the waiting list for admission under this protocol.

Application Process

The school participates in the Lewisham LA in year coordinated admissions scheme.

If you would like to apply for the in year waiting list applications must be made to Lewisham LA Common Application Form, which can be found by clicking on the link below.

In Year Common Application Form

Lewisham will then inform the school of the application. If a place cannot be offered at the time of applying, the child’s name will be added to the waiting list for the academic year.
