SEPTEMBER 2020 ENTRY

(for children born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016)

Thursday 16 April is National Offer Day for Reception places for September 2020. Families will be notified by their home Local Authority of the offer of a school place on the day. Please see the London Borough of Lambeth’s Admissions page linked HERE for more information. Residents of other boroughs should visit their own Local Authority’s website for details.

On Friday 17 April, Dunraven School will write, by email, to those applicants who applied to the school who have either:

a)    been offered a place at Dunraven School, or
b)    have not been offered a place and have not been offered a school listed as a higher preference on their Common Application Form

Dunraven School will not write to families who have been offered a school listed as a higher preference on their Common Application Form.

In line with Local Authority guidelines, Dunraven Admissions Office will not be able to communicate with families over the phone or in person about offers until you have received correspondence from the Local Authority and from Dunraven School. The correspondence contains information about accepting offers and, for those not offered a place, about waiting lists and appeals. Please wait until you have received this information before contacting us with any queries.

Late applications may still be submitted. Please refer to our Admissions Policy for information about the process.
