If you are moving to Hackney as a new arrival to the UK, you cannot apply until you are resident in the borough. Once you are a resident, you need to come to the Hackney Education office with the child / children to complete the application form and provide identification and proof of address. For families returning to the UK, having previously lived in Hackney, applications can be made up to six weeks before arrival.
Please note that if you are applying for a school transfer, it may take up to 20 school days to process your application.
In-Year Applications from Overseas
Normally, parents wishing to make an in year application for their child cannot do so until their child is a resident in the United Kingdom. However, Local Authorities will accept applications from parents with a right of abode if they can provide evidence that they are planning a return/arrival to the United Kingdom.
Hackney Education will accept an application up to 6 weeks before their anticipated arrival date. Satisfactory evidence will need to be provided. Places not taken up by the agreed date will not be held open. Please contact Hackney Education for details.
