Admissions to secondary school

Year 6 open days, open evenings and virtual tours

As a result of social distancing restrictions many of the events planned by secondary schools in Newham can no longer take place as published in the Starting Secondary School guide. 

In place of these events schools have worked hard to create new ways for families to find out about all schools in the borough before submitting their application for secondary school in September 2021, by the national closing date of 31 October 2020.

You will also find lots of information about all secondary school in Newham on their own websites.
