What happens if I miss the application deadline?

You can still apply directly to the Brent e-admissions.

We strongly recommend that you submit your application on time. Applications received after midnight on 31 October 2023 will be processed as a late application and you will not find out what school you have been offered until the second or third round of offers.

When will I hear if my application has been successful?

If you submit your application by 31 October then you will receive a response on national offer day which is 1 March 2024.

Depending on when you apply, it will be after the 1st round of offers have been made and processed.

What if I had an exceptional circumstance as to why I could not apply on time?
You will need to contact the local council and they will let you know whether they can accept any supporting evidence and take it into consideration on the application being submitted late.
