Applying for a school place
National Offer Day is Wednesday 1 March 2023. Secondary school offer notifications will be sent after 5pm on this day.
Every Bromley resident who made an on time secondary school application (i.e. by 31 October 2022) will receive an offer of a secondary school place on this date.
If you applied online, you will be able to log onto your eAdmissions account after receiving your offer notification to find out the details of the school offered. Please wait until you have received your email before logging onto eAdmissions.
A next steps guide is available to help you understand what options are available following your school offer.
The admissions and transport team strongly encourage you to read this guidance before making decisions so that you have as much information as possible to help you in your decision making
You must ensure that you accept or refuse the place offered online (via eAdmissions) by Wednesday 15 March 2023. Alternatively, you can email your acceptance or refusal to firstname.lastname@example.org, but must ensure that you quote your child’s name, date of birth and the name of the school offered in your email.
If you refuse the offer made without having secured an alternative school, you risk your child not having a school place for September 2023. If you decide to refuse the place offered, it is important to consider the following:
- Once a place is refused, the offer will be removed from your child's record and will be made available to be offered to another child.
- If you later change your mind, we cannot guarantee that the place will still be available for your child to be offered again however they can be added to the waiting list for the school.
If you are a Bromley resident and wish to add additional schools to your child’s application for September 2023 entry, please complete the additional preference form. The additional preferences will be added to your child’s secondary application after Monday 3 April 2023.

Some schools may require you to complete an additional form called a Supplementary Information Form (SIF). These are clearly marked in the applying for a school place booklet . SIFs are available from the relevant school and must be returned to the school by the closing date for applications.
