Year 7 Admissions for September 2018

If your daughter was born between 1 September 2006 and 31 August 2007 you may apply for a place at LMS for the school year starting in September 2018 (“the Admission Year”). The school’s Year 7 Admissions Policy tells you how to apply and how we will deal with your application. Additional details of our admissions arrangements may be found in the Year 7 Admissions Handbook.  If you wish to apply for a Year 7 place you must;

•    fill in the Common Application Form and send it to your local authority by 31 October 2017 (please visit e-admissions for more details )
•    fill in the Additional Information Form and send it to LMS by 31 October 2017
•    bring your daughter to the banding tests at the school on Friday; 17 November 2017

If you wish to apply for a Foundation Place you must tell us about your daughter’s church attendance on the Additional Information Form.

There were 701 applications for the 120 places available in September 2017. Girls with statements of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan naming the school are admitted after consultation with the Tri-Borough SEN Department. Then we give first priority to girls who are looked after or previously looked after.  We give second priority to siblings.  And we give third priority to the girls who live closest to the school. Please, bear in mind that we do not have medical, social, nor financial compassion criteria in the Admission Policy.
