We are delighted to welcome all prospective pupils and parents to our Open Evening in September. You might prefer to visit during the school day for an individual tour of the school as this provides an opportunity to see the school in action and explore the school’s extensive facilities.
If you would like to arrange a visit to the school, please get in touch with the Admissions Team on: 020 8845 6266.
Hillingdon is part of the Pan-London Co-ordinated Admissions System. Parents can name up to six different schools that they want to apply for including any out of borough schools on Hillingdon’s common application form. Preferences will need to be ranked in order of priority (this is important as only one offer will be made and this will be from the highest ranked school able to make an offer).
All the councils taking part in the Pan-London Co-ordinated Admissions System will then use a computerised system to pass on details of applications for schools in other areas and to co-ordinate the offer of places to make sure that nobody gets offered more than one school place. Each admission authority will work out how well you qualify for each school using the admission rules.
Children in public care (looked after children (LAC)) and other LAC who have been adopted or made subject to a residency order or special guardianship orders following having been looked after.
Children who have a sibling at this School at the time of the application of the child for whom a place is sought. Sibling is defined as children who live as brother or sister in the same house, including natural brothers or sisters, adopted siblings, stepbrothers or sisters and foster brothers and sisters.
Children living nearest the school, measured in a straight line from the School to their parents’ permanent home, from the point set by Ordnance Survey at the child’s home address (including flats) to the School (co-ordinates 511852, 185609) using the Local Authority’s computerised measuring system, with those living closer to the School receiving the higher priority.
Recruitment and retention of staff (children of staff who have been employed at Queensmead School for at least two years or those that meet a skills shortage). These students will be admitted in addition to the admission number. Applications in this category should be made in the normal way and augmented by a letter directly to the Head Teacher of Queensmead School.
