Applications for September 2022 start

PLEASE NOTE

Our admissions point is measured to the front door of the permanent school site at 389 Richmond Road, Richmond Upon Thames, TW1 2EF. For any admission related inquiries, please email the school: admissions@deerparkschool.org.uk

Use the eAdmissions website from 1 September 2021 to apply online for your child’s primary (reception) or junior (Year 3) school place.

Children born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018 are due to start reception class at primary school in September 2022.

You can name up to six schools in your application including academy or free schools and schools in other council areas.

If you do not live within the borough you need to apply for a place through your own council and you can include Richmond schools in your application.

The closing date is 15 January 2022.

If you have any difficulty completing your application, please contact the School Admissions Team.

Important

You must still apply for reception class even if your child already attends the nursery at your preferred primary school.

Before you apply

Please read before applying:

For church schools, academies and free schools, please visit the school’s website for how places have been offered for the last three years.

When making your application in eAdmissions you should:

  • Complete a separate application for each child if you are applying for twins or triplets
  • Tell us in your application if your child will have a brother or sister (sibling) attending your preferred school(s) in September 2022

Certain schools need additional information to apply their admissions criteria and may require you to also complete a Supplementary Information Form. For example, schools that prioritise applications by faith. If you are applying for this type of school, please check the school’s website for further information and to download a Supplementary Information Form.

If your child has an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP), or a Statement of Special Education Needs, you don’t need to complete the application.
