Sir Francis Drake

Admissions to Reception for September 2021

Admissions into Reception are administered by Lewisham, who run the process for all state primary schools in the borough. Applications must be made online. Click here for more information.

The schools policy on admissions, as agreed by Governors and the local authority, is as follows with priority given to:

  • Children in Local Authority care.  (Please note: children from abroad who are believed to be in care or have been in care will be given the same admission status as children look after in the UK)
  • Acute medical or social needs.
  • Brothers or sisters already attending the school.
  • Children for whom Sir Francis Drake is the nearest community school.

You have the right to appeal if you think that the admissions procedures have not been administered fairly.

Please read our admissions policy here
