Offer of a secondary school place

Southwark Council will no longer be sending offer letters by post. Instead, you'll receive an email from eAdmissions during the evening of 1 March 2018 from 5pm which will confirm your child’s offer of a secondary school place and provide information on what to do next. If you do not receive this email please check your junk mail folder. If you have still not received the email by Friday 2 March please contact Southwark Council’s school admissions team by email.

You'll also be able to find out the outcome of your application by logging into the eAdmissions website using your unique user name and password during the evening of 1 March 2018.

Application results won't be provided over the telephone

Please note that the offer of a school place is conditional until proof of address has been confirmed by the school. Original copies of the following will be required:

  • child benefit documentation, or if you're no longer eligible to receive child benefit you'll need a letter from the HMRC confirming you were previously in receipt of child benefit 
  • Council Tax bill
  • one other proof of address (TV licence, bank statement, credit/store card statement)

Respond to your offer of a school place

Your child’s offer will be automatically accepted if you're a Southwark resident and his/her details will be forwarded to the allocated school after 15 March 2018.

This offer of a school place will remain available unless you notify us of any other suitable alternative arrangement for education that has been made for your child. You must notify the school admissions team by email and include your unique application reference number by 15 March 2018 so that other children can be offered the place.

If the council or an admission authority has reason to suspect that a family doesn't live at the address stated on the application, we'll carry out an investigation. If we discover that a parent is making a fraudulent claim, the offer of a place will be withdrawn

The Department for Education website offers advice and information to parents on a wide range of school related issues, including the school admissions code and the school admission appeals code.
