If you do not live in Islington, you can still apply to Central Foundation using your home local authority’s form (ie the council to whom you pay your council tax).

Important notice: Admissions into Year 7 in September 2018
Central Foundation Boys’ School will offer additional 30 places in Year 7 from September 2018.
Year 7 roll will, therefore, expand from 150 to 180 places.

Admissions Policies:

Parents applying for a place for their child under the School’s second admission criterion which offers priority to “Students who have exceptional special educational needs or have social or medical reasons for them to attend this particular school”, should provide supporting evidence, which could be a letter or a report, from an appropriate professional, for example, a GP, a Social Worker, a counsellor or any other professional working with the student or their family.

The table below shows a break-down of furthest distance (in miles) from the School by which secondary transfer applicants were accepted under the distance criterion in recent years. Please note that this distance changes each year and the statistics should be used only as a guide. The statistics are based on data published on National Offer Day in March and the distance from the School by which applicants were accepted expands as the places are allocated from the waiting list.
