Admission of Change

A series of road shows have been organised to tell parents and carers about important new changes to the admissions policy for next year’s secondary school places.

Merton Council is to run the hour long shows to help those parents affected by the changes, which come into affect for school admissions in 2005.

The new procedure that will co-ordinate secondary school admissions to ensure each child gets just one offer of one place will affect all parents, guardians and carers with children born between September 1, 1993 and August 31, 1994.

The road shows take place in a selection of primary schools throughout June and July.

· The Priory – June 21
· West Wimbledon – June 22
· Aragon – June 24
· William Morris – June 29
· Bond – June 30
· Wimbledon Chase – July 5

Full details of how to apply for a secondary school place will still be issued in September by your current primary school, but the above road shows will give parents information and help answer any pressing questions.

Parents are welcome to attend whichever event suits best. All shows begin at 6.30pm and will include a short presentation followed by a question and answer session.
