Moving from primary to secondary school
If your child was born between 1 September 2009 and 31 August 2010 inclusive, you need to apply for a year 7 secondary school place for September 2021. The national closing date for year 7 applications is 31st October 2020.
If you live in Newham, you apply via LB Newham Pupil Services.
If you live outside Newham and you want your child to attend this school, you need to apply via your home borough naming this school as a preference on your application.

In-Year or ‘Mid Phase’ Admissions
Mid Phase Admissions are students who join school outside the normal admission times, so after the first half term of Year 7 through to Year 11. We are aware that students joining Rokeby mid-phase are doing so for a variety of reasons, some of which may be upsetting and difficult for them. At Rokeby we support all students and offer packages to meet their individual needs, whether emotional, learning or behavioural.
If your family arrives in Newham during the school year 2020/21 and your child needs a school place, you must complete an In Year application form naming your preferred school(s). The Newham School Finder is a useful tool for determining the location of schools and for calculating home-to-school distances. The Starting Secondary School guide provides a useful overview of Newham’s secondary schools.
School places are usually offered within 10 days. Please note that you may not be offered the school of your choice, if there are no vacancies at that school. Click here for information on waiting lists.
