Responding to Offers
It is vital that you respond to the offer the offer your child has been made by Tuesday 15 March 2022.
If you applied online, you must respond to the offer online.
See Lambeth's instructions for accepting an offer online.
If you applied using a paper Common Application Form (CAF), you must respond using the reply form enclosed in the offer letter.
It is strongly advised that any offer made is accepted, even if it is a preference or an allocated offer. By accepting the offer, it does not mean that an offer for a higher preference cannot be made from the child's CAF later on, but it will secure a place for your child.
Offers not accepted by 15/3/22 could be withdrawn.
Offers can be rejected online, but will only be confirmed by us if the child has another school to attend or the family are moving away. The name of the other (usually private) school offered or area that you are moving to must be provided when the offer Lambeth have made is being rejected.
Late applications, offers and waiting lists
Late applications will not be processed until after 1/3/22, there is no timescale or set date for an outcome reply.
Waiting list places will not be available until at least 22/3/22. Please note that some schools this year have used random allocation instead of ability banding due to Covid-19. This means that waiting list places will change over time as new applications are included.
