Admissions drop-in surgery

Southwark Council’s school admissions team hold weekly surgeries aimed at families residing in the borough. Families can access first hand advice and support from Southwark Council’s school admissions officers on primary, secondary and in year admission related matters only.

Due to refurbishment work being undertaken at the Peckham Customer Service Point between 15 October 2018 and 2 January 2019, the school admissions weekly drop in surgery will be temporarily based at our Tooley Street offices during this period. Please note the following changes to this service:

Day and time

  • drop in surgery every Wednesday on a first come first served basis (during term time), from 9.30am to 3pm
on Wednesday 5 December, the drop in surgery will not take place and is cancelled
  • the last drop in surgery for this term will be on Wednesday 12 December 2018

As the surgery operates on a first come first served basis, there may be a short wait before meeting with an officer.

When you arrive, please let reception staff know that you're here for the school admissions drop in surgery so they can notify our officers to come and see you.

Please note, Southwark Council’s school admission officers are not trained to assist families with queries relating to early years, nurseries or funding. For families with buggies, we're unable to guarantee that the meeting will take place in a ground floor room.
