Waiting lists

All Hillingdon secondary schools hold their own waiting lists. If the school is outside the borough of Hillingdon you should contact the borough in which the school is situated to enquire whether the waiting list is provided by the school or the Local Authority. Please do not contact the school in Hillingdon any sooner than mid April as waiting lists will not yet be available.


You have the right of appeal under the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 against the refusal of a place at any of the schools for which you have applied. You must contact the Hillingdon school directly to obtain all relevant information. If the school is outside Hillingdon, please contact the borough in which the school is situated to obtain the procedure and date by which an appeal must be received by them. Appeals are heard by an independent panel and must have no connection with the school concerned. For Hillingdon schools' appeals, documentation must be lodged by Friday 29 March 2019 to ensure that the appeal is heard before the end of term.

Before your apply

Read the school admissions brochure 2019 [2MB].

The brochure contains a lot of useful information on making your application, choosing your schools, frequently asked questions and all of the schools' individual criteria and contact details.

Proof of address

You are required to submit proof of address [71KB] alongside your application. Please be aware that when you apply online you will not be able to attach any documentary evidence until after you have submitted your application.

Supplementary information forms

Please note some schools, such as faith schools, require the completion of a supplementary information form (SIF). This is so that they can decide which pupils should have the highest priority when making offers. SIFs are available directly from each school and their website. They must be returned to the school or to the address provided by the school by the specified deadline, which may differ between schools.

The following schools require SIFs to be completed in order to process applications. SIFs can only be considered if they have a direct bearing on oversubscription criteria or for the purpose of selection by aptitude or ability.

Schools must still accept applications without a completed SIF as all schools have to consider 'other applicants'.

The following school operates a fair banding system to allocate places. The places within each band are based on year 6 students taking a Non Verbal Reasoning Test (NVRT).

  • Swakeleys School for Girls

The deadline for returning the form was 28 September 2018.

Please visit the schools individual website for further information.
