Making an application

We process all school applications for LB Bromley residents.  You cannot apply directly to schools.

If you live outside LB Bromley, you must apply to your local council, even if you want to apply for a Bromley school.  You can include Bromley schools on your out of borough application.

Proof of address and parental responsibility are required to support all school applications.

You can view or download the Starting Primary Education in Bromley leaflet and booklet  for more information.

Children with a statement of special educational needs

 If your child has a statement of special educational needs, please do not complete any of these forms but contact the Special Educational Needs team for further information.

In exceptional circumstances there is discretion to admit a child on the grounds of their or their family’s acute medical and social need for their first preference school only.  Applications must have been made by 15 January 2014 using the registration form for consideration under medical or social needs.
