Admission Consultation

The West London Free School Academy Trust is currently consulting on the admissions arrangements for the school for 18/19.  You can read a letter about the consultation and learn how to respond here and you can see the draft arrangements here.


Admissions for places in September 2017 are now open.

The admissions arrangements of the Kensington Primary Academy fully comply with the School Admissions Code and admissions law.  The school is open to anyone and is non-selective.  There will be 30 places in Reception in 2016 and from September 2017, 24 full- time places in the Nursery.  From 2016 the school will fill up year group by year group until 2022. 

Priority will be given to children with statements of Special Educational Needs or Education, Health and Care plans, looked-after children, and children who were looked after but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a child arrangements, residence or special guardianship order), founders’ children, children who are eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant and children of staff at the school who have been employed for more than two years.  But the lion’s share of places will be allocated according to straight-line distance from the school gate, thereby ensuring the school serves local families.

The most efficient way to apply will be via the e-admissions portal here.  You'll see the Kensington Primary Academy pop up towards the bottom once you've identified the local authority it's in, i.e. The Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea. You don't have to be a resident of this borough to apply.

Our admissions policy for 2017 can be found here.
