Admissions for Year 7

September 2019 entry

(for children born between 1 September 2007 and 31 August 2008)

Friday 1 March was National Offer Day for places for Year 7 for September.  Families will have been notified by their home Local Authority of the offer of a school place on the day.  Lambeth residents should visit the Lambeth Admissions site for more information.  Residents of other Boroughs should visit their own Local Authority's website for details. 

On Monday 4 March Dunraven School has written, by post, 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 of 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 notification from the Local Authority and the letter from Dunraven School.  The letters contain information about accepting offers and, for those not offered a place, about closing deadlines, waiting lists and appeals.   Please wait until you have received this information before contacting us with any queries.

For information about how offers have been made for Year 7 for September 2019 and for previous years, please see the document linked below:
