Academy Admissions

Welcome to the Harris Academy Philip Lane Admissions information page. We recognise that choosing a school for your child is an important decision. We hold regular open sessions for prospective parents and their children to come and visit us. We have two options availble for you to chose from:

We conduct parent tours on alternate Tuesday's and Thursday's which allow parents an option of an am (Tuesday) or pm (Thursday) slots. The Tuesday tour takes place at 9.30am on the Tuesdays listed below and concentrates on the core subjects while our Thursday tour, which takes places at 2pm on the dates below, concentrates more on the arts and foundation subjects. We believe these tours, which the Executive Principal leads, offer an invaluable insight into life at our Academy.

Parents wishing to visit our school should contact the school office to make an appointment on 020 8808 3231 making it clear which visit option they wish to undertake. These tours are for parents with children born between 01 September 2014 to 31 August 2015 only.

Telephone: 0208 808 3231
Email: info@harrisprimaryphiliplane.org.uk
Address: Harris Primary Academy Philip Lane, Philip Lane,  London, N15 4AB

Nursery Applications

We have 52 part time places available in our nursery. Please contact our admissions team for an application form.

Reception Applications

The Academy has 60 places in Reception for September 2019

Applications for places in Reception should be made via the local authority.

Reception Key Dates  2018/2019
19 January 2019 Application forms to be received by the Local Authority
April 2019 The LA will contact parents to inform them if they have been successful in applying for a place.
May 2019 Deadline for parents to accept the offered place.
May 2019 Deadline for appeals to be made in writing to the LA
May - June 2019 Appeals to be heard
September 2019 Waiting Lists closed and replaced by casual admissions waiting lists, Parents/Carers will need to re-apply as a casual admission, if still waiting.


Where  a  child  is  the  subject  of  a  Statement  of  Special  Educational  Needs where  the  Academy  is  named  in  the  Statement or an EHC (Educational Healthcare) Plan,  he or she  will  be  admitted under different regulations.

After the admission of pupils with Statements of Special Educational Needs or EHC Plans, we follow the local admission criteria and the following rules will be applied in the order of priority set out below to decide who will be offered a place:

1) Children in Care - Children who are looked after by a local authority or were previously looked after but immediately after being looked after, became subject to an adoption, residence, or special guardianship order.

2) Social Medical - Children who the Authority accepts have an exceptional medical or social need for a place at one specific school. Applications will only be considered under this category if they are supported by a written statement from a doctor, social worker or other relevant independent professional. The information must confirm the exceptional medical or social need and demonstrate how the specified school is the only school that can meet the defined needs of the child.

3) Brother or sister - Children with a brother or sister already attending Philip Lane and who will still be attending on the date of admission. This category includes foster brothers and sisters, half brothers and sisters or stepbrothers and sisters or other children living permanently at the same address. Parents should note that in all these cases, the brother or sister must be living at the same address as the child for whom the application is being made.

4) Distance - Children living closet to the Academy.  This is measured in a straight line from post office address point for the child's home, to the post office point of the academy, supplied by the Royal Mail using a computerised mapping system.

Supporting our families with Primary and Secondary applications

Applications are now mostly completed on line (e-Admissions), however here at Philip Lane we recognise that computers/internet are not always accessible to everyone.  Therefore during these key times at the start of a child's Primary and Secondary School life, we offer our parents and carers the opportunity to come into our Academy to receive support with their applications.


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 Teresa on info@harrisprimaryphiliplane.org.uk 


For Parents/Carers who wish to appeal

Please note that there is no guarantee that a place will be available, but you have the right of appeal if you are refused a place. If you wish to appeal an admissions decision please see the form below and contact the Admissions Team.
