Parents looking for a school place for September 2020

At this time of year many families (approx 200 -300 each year in Tower Hamlets) will have found that their child has been allocated a school place that they did not apply for. This sadly is normal across all local authorities. Many schools will have been allocated children in this way.

Bishop Challoner Girls’ School and Bishop Challoner Boys’ School are both Voluntary Aided schools which are their own admissions authorities and as such are never allocated children in this way.

That is why despite being amongst the most successful and highly regarded schools in our area we usually have some spaces available at this time.

At this time of year we will therefore fill up with applications such as yours from families that would rather send their child to our schools.

This process usually includes visiting the school and meeting with our Executive Headteacher. However in the present circumstances that is not possible.

At present all you need to do is to fill in the online form below and this information will go directly to our Admissions Officer (working at home at present). They will make contact with you and process your application for you.

We look forward to meeting you and working with you in the near future.
