Moving on to secondary school in Camden – open events for parents 2023
Updated: 14 September 2023.
Parents and carers can find out more about Camden secondary schools and how to apply at school open events this term. Please note that our Moving On event at the Francis Crick Institute on Thursday 21 September, is now fully-booked.
Camden secondary schools are holding their own open events during September and October - and will also hold open events in November for their sixth forms. These are a great way for parents and carers to find out more about the schools for themselves before applying. You can download a poster with all the dates and times here.
Local group Meet the Parents also holds its own independent forums at local primary schools, where families can ‘meet the parents’ and students who attend their local secondary schools. Find out more about these events here.
You can also read about Camden secondary schools, what they have to offer your child, and the admissions process in our annual Secondary Schools in Camden guide for parents, which is now published on our website.
We’re proud of the quality of education, opportunities and support offered for students in Camden. Our secondary schools are high achieving and ambitious for all students, offering a tremendous range of opportunities to help prepare young people for happy and successful futures. I’d urge parents and carers to see for themselves what the borough’s secondary schools have to offer by visiting the open events offered by the Council, our schools and Meet the Parents.
We’re also seeking parents and residents who are interested in becoming governors at Camden schools, and parents and carers who attend the Moving On event can find out more about this volunteering opportunity there too.
Your child will be due to start secondary school in September 2024 if they were born between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013.
The next round of Year 7 applications for 2024 entry begins from 1 September 2023. You need to apply before the deadline of 31 October 2023.
