Welcome to the Harris Academy Philip Lane admissions information page. We recognise that choosing a school for your child is an important decision.

Given the current circumstances, we are pleased to present our HPAPL Virtual Tour explaining why and how Harris Primary Academy Philip Lane should be your school of choice and why it is rated Ofsted Outstanding.

Our full policy, with details of our admissions criteria, can be downloaded from further down the page.  A brief summary of the application procedure follows, Reception and in-year admissions.

We have 60 places available in Reception each year. 

When considering applications, children with a Statement of Special Education Needs that names the Academy or those with Educational Healthcare (EHC) Plans will be admitted first and under different regulations.

If there are more than 60 applications, Looked After and Former Looked After Children will be admitted first, followed by children who the Harris Trust accepts have an exceptional medical or social need for a place at the school. Supporting evidence in the form of a written statement from a doctor, social worker or other relevant independent professionals will need to be provided.

Children with siblings at the Academy will be prioritised next.  Children who attend our nursery will follow then and all remaining places will be distributed on the basis of proximity between home and school, with children who live closest to our Academy on Philip Lane being prioritised.

The Academy has 60 places in Reception for September 2022.

For Parents/Carers who Wish to Appeal

Parent(s) may wish to appeal against the Academy’s decision on admissions based on the published admissions criteria.

If you wish to appeal, you must fill in the Appeals Form. You can attach to your appeals form any relevant documents and or a letter with information and evidence that you feel supports your case.

Completed forms should be sent to the Clerk to the Appeal Panel at info@harrisprimaryphiliplane.org.uk.

Harris Primary Academy Philip Lane, London, N154AB

Completed appeal forms must be received by the Academy on 'To be confirm'.

The appeals will be heard, in private, by an Independent appeal Panel. The Clerk to the Appeal Panel will make an appointment within a reasonable time and appeals may be made in English or the Parents’/Carers’ first language.

• Only one appeal per application is allowed.

• Appeals are conducted in person, and you may bring a friend.

The Appeal Hearing

The Academy will arrange for an Independent Appeals Panel to consider the Academy's reasons for refusal and your reasons for wanting to attend the Academy.  

The Panel will consist of 3 people (2 will have education experience and one will be an independent person with no education experience).

The Panel will consider the case put forward by you and the Academy. They must consider the admission arrangements for the Academy and the reasons why you want to attend that particular school.  The Panel must exercise its discretion by balancing the weight of your argument (for wanting to attend) against the Academy’s reasons for refusal i.e. the prejudice that one more student would cause to the education of the students already offered and the Health and Safety of all the students already attending the Academy, also taking into account the Academy's published admission arrangements.  

The decision of the Independent Appeals Panel is binding on the admissions authority and the Parents.


In-Year Applications

If you are looking for a place in Harris Primary Academy Philip Lane because you have recently moved into the area, or your child is at another primary school and you feel that a change of school would benefit their education and/or general well-being, you are entitled to apply for a school place. 

Please contact the Admissions team at the Academy, (contact details above) to request an in-year admission form, or download from below. You can also return the form electronically for the attention of Miss Miron on info@harrisprimaryphiliplane.org.uk
