(for children born between 1 September 2014 and 31 August 2015)

Tuesday 16 April 2019 is National Offer Day for Reception places for September 2019. Families will be notified by their home Local Authority of the offer of a school place on the day. Lambeth residents will be notified after 5pm on 16 April. Please see the Lambeth Admissions site linked HERE for more information. Residents of other Boroughs, should visit their own Local Authority’s website for details.

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

  1. been offered a place at Dunraven School, or

  2. have not been offered a place and have not been offered a school of 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 will not be able to communicate with families over the phone or in person about offers until you have received the letters from the Local Authority and from Dunraven School. The letters contain information about accepting offers and, for those not offered a place, about closing deadlines, waiting list and appeals. Please wait until you have received this information before contacting us with any queries.
