Admissions to Michael Faraday School

Please note that there is a different procedure for admission to the Nursery and the Reception class.

Nursery Admission

The school is responsible for Nursery admissions but, in allocating places we follow the same guidelines used by Southwark. You can read about these over here.

You may register for a nursery place when your child becomes two. Children will begin Nursery in the term after their third birthday. We offer both full and part-time places; the hours are dependent upon your child’s readiness for school.

If you would like to apply for a place in the school’s Nursery, please make sure you have completed a Nursery Admission Form available here or from the school office.

Reception Admission

If you are applying for a place in Reception then you must register with Southwark, create an account and complete an on-line application using this link.

If you require further advice or information you can contact Southwark’s Admissions Team on 020 7525 5337.

Please remember that Michael Faraday School is always heavily over-subscribed. Late admissions cannot be considered in the first round of applications. Reception places are allocated by the Local Education Authority, and not by the school. The Local Education Authority manages the school’s waiting list until 31st August when it is handed over to the school.

Remember that if you currently have a child already in the school Nursery, you must still complete an on-line application for admission to Reception. There is no automatic transfer from Nursery to Reception.

In Year Admission

If you are looking for a primary school place for your child in Years 1 to 6 please fill in the application form that is available over here.

This form must be completed and taken to your child’s existing school for the present headteacher’s signature. Copies of this form may be obtained from the school if you have difficulty accessing or printing this form.
