Councillor Robert Benham, Cabinet Member for Children and Learning, said:

“We wish to ensure all parents in the borough complete their online application on time, as some schools within the borough receive in excess of six times more applications than places available. If any parent has any concerns or questions, please contact the Havering Admissions Team via the website.”

The Council advises that when deciding on either a primary school or secondary school to make sure you have read the individual school admissions criteria carefully.  The criteria will help guide you on the possibility of being offered a place at your desired school.  Criteria’s help to shape the order of preferred schools listed on your online application form.
