Admissions 2020/21

Admissions Procedure during School Closure

  • Following advice from the Harrow Council Schools' Admission Service, in-year applications are currently suspended, although parents/carers can still make applications. Any offers made over the last few weeks will be put on hold until schools reopen. In the interim, parents/carers will be contacted by the school and provided with further advice.
  • We will continue to follow the 11+ offer schedule and will work alongside the co-ordination timeline, which indicates the key dates for secondary transition (click here for more details).
  • For all families joining us in September 2020, we look forward to welcoming you. Hopefully you have received our welcome letter and admissions document for your completion and return. We shall write to you again in due course with more details about your son/daughter's transition to secondary school.

If you are thinking of applying for a place at our school for your child in Year 7, in the first instance, please attend our Open Mornings at the end of September. We have 324 places in Year 7 and are heavily over-subscribed, so we recommend that if you are keen for your child to join us, you express us as your first preference. Should you not be able to attend during our Open Week, visits from prospective parents and carers are welcomed during the Autumn term after the Open Mornings have taken place until Friday 18 October; please contact Student Services at the school should you wish to book a visit.

The school Admissions Service co-ordinates school admissions for Harrow Council. The service acts as a first point of contact for parents and carers for queries relating to transfer to high school or in year transfers.

If you wish to apply to Nower Hill for a place for your child, please see the links below for further information.

Occasionally we have places become available in year in all Year groups, so if you wish your child to transfer to our school from elsewhere, please contact School Admissions at the London Borough of Harrow to put their name on our waiting list.
