Admissions to Grange Primary School
Admissions to Reception are handled by Southwark through the Common Application Form, which is available online at www.southwark.gov.uk. Admissions at other times are handled through our school office, if you are moving from another Southwark school, or by Southwark, if you are moving from outside the borough.
Admissions to Grange Primary School follow the Southwark community schools criteria. This means that priority is given first of all to looked-after children, then to siblings of children who are currently attending the school, then to children with particular medical, social or psychological needs, then finally on distance from the school.

COVID-19 & Open Mornings:
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the current pandemic, all open mornings have been paused until further notice. We will inform you of any change to the current situation on this page.
Brilliant schools give young people the great start in life they deserve. Secondary schools are still finalising their plans around open days. The brochure “ Starting secondary school in Southwark 2022/23“ does not include any dates, so you will have to check for updates on school websites.
Before you choose your school, please take some time to look at school brochures and websites and also to look at the most recent Ofsted of the school/s you are considering for your child/ren: www.gov.uk/government/organisations/ofsted. Many schools have videos on their website that can give an insight to you and your child about school life.
This page offers you a plethora of important information and guidance to ensure that you have everything you need to help you make the right decision for your child’s next step on their academic journey. If you have questions, please feel free to talk to us.
