The deadline to apply for a reception class place is Tuesday 15 January. You can choose up to six preferred schools, either in Camden or outside the borough.
Many Camden schools are very popular, so it is best to use all six preferences. We strongly recommend that you apply online - the majority of parents did so last year.
Primary pupils in Camden consistently perform above the national average in test results for 11-year-olds. Our 2018 results show that 72% of Camden pupils achieved expectations in the combined measure for reading, writing and maths - well above the national figure of 64%.
Camden primary schools also offer a huge range of extracurricular activities - with access to world-class venues and institutions on their doorstep, ranging from the British Museum to the Francis Crick Institute.
