Transferring from primary to secondary school is a big step for both children and parents, and you need to gather as much information as possible to help you make the right decisions. If your child is in year six of primary school in September 2023, you will need to apply for them to start their secondary education for September 2024.
You can register and apply online at eAdmissions. Online admissions open on 1st September 2023, and the application deadline is 31st October 2023. Applications can be made after this date but will be treated as late applications. You can view guidance in the step-by-step guide to applying online.
Places at all Enfield secondary schools will be allocated in line with the published admissions arrangements, which can be found in the guide to secondary schools in Enfield.
Visiting Secondary Schools
Schools will be holding open evenings for parents in September and October 2023. For information on dates and times of open evenings, view applying for a secondary school for September 2024 (including open evenings). For further details, please check the websites of schools you are interested in.
For information about the breakdown of allocations at Enfield Schools for children starting in Year 7 for the previous 4 years, view Secondary Transfer Previous Allocations Breakdown.
If your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), the arrangements for your child’s transfer will be different. Please contact the SEN Services Team directly to explain the process further.
You can search for primary, secondary and special needs schools in Enfield and across England by visiting Gov.UK. Find and check the performance of schools and colleges in England, access Ofsted reports, information on school performance and approximate home-to-school distances. These are only a guide, as Enfield School Admissions Services use their own specialist systems to measure distances when allocating places in Enfield.
