General Secondary Transfer Information:

The council co-ordinates the transfer from primary to secondary school for admission to all Camden state secondary schools.

You can apply online from around 1st September 2020 until 31st October 2020.

All Camden secondary schools organise open days and evenings in September and October and we recommend you attend these before applying. Camden Council publishes a list of these open days on their website traditionally in August each year - we will print this list off and pop it in book bags at the start of the new school year in September 2020.

If you are considering applying for private education please visit the individual school's website or contact their school offices for further information on the application process and details of their open days/mornings, as each school may have their own process.

If we can be of any further assistance with any aspect of your application please don't hesitate to ask.

 Message from Camden School Admissions team:

All Secondary transfer applications must be completed online at after 1st September. Prior to completing an application all parents must register for an eadmissions account (if they don't already have one).

The Camden School Admissions team is offering to assist the parents of Year 5 children who live in Camden to register for an eadmissions account over the summer holidays.

Parents can call us on 0207 974 1625 and we can assist either over the phone or set up a meeting.
