Applying for a place for your child at Snowsfields or Tower Bridge

In year admissions are arranged by the school. Please contact the school of your choice directly if you wish to apply for a place. You will then be invited to come for a visit and complete an enrolment form. We hold regular open days or alternatively please telephone the school to arrange an appointment. The school office is open from 8.30am to 4.00pm.

Nursery Places

If you wish to apply for a place in the Nursery, parents should apply as soon as children reach the age of two.  We will write to you to let you know whether your child has been given a place before the term in which your child is due to start school.  We will invite you to visit the school with your child.  This gives you both a chance to see the classroom and meet the teacher and some of the children.  This visit is very important, as it helps children to feel confident about their entry to school. The Class teacher will also carry out a home visit before your child starts. This is so she can see your child in a familiar environment where they feel comfortable and confident. If your child has a place in the Nursery, it does not guarantee a place in Reception as these places are allocated centrally through Southwark admissions.

Reception Places

Applications for a place in Reception must be done using the online application form and be submitted by the required deadline. Places are then allocated by Southwark’s Admission’s Team. Follow the link below.

Applying for a place in the Resource Base for Children with Autism at Snowsfields

Children with a diagnosis of autism are admitted to the Resource Base, Rainbow Class, through Southwark Special Educational Needs Department and not via the school.

You can view Southwark’s determined admission arrangements and co-ordinated admission schemes for September 2017 at:

Applying for Secondary School

When your child reaches Year 6 you will need to start looking at which Secondary School you want your child to attend. The process starts in September. Parents will be invited along to a meeting in school, where we will explain the process. All the secondary schools hold open days throughout September and October, so visit as many as you can.

You will then need to complete the online common application form before the deadline, which is usually at the end of October. You can choose up to six schools which you list in order of preference. Some schools have additional forms that you need to complete and return directly to the school.

Further guidance, including information about all the schools, their open days and how to apply can be found on Southwark’s website. If you live in another borough, but attend a Southwark school, you will need to apply through their website and not Southwark’s.
