Admissions for places in September 2024 are now open. You can watch our virtual tour here. Our admissions policy for 2024 can be found here. The school is open to anyone and is non-selective. Answers to some commonly asked admissions questions can be found here.
As the school is based in Hammersmith, we will be admitting children according to their proximity to two separate geographical points rather than just one.
The first will be the location of the school which is on Banim Street in Hammersmith, the second will be the Earl's Court tube station.
If the Earl's Court Free School Primary is oversubscribed, it’s published oversubscription criteria are used to decide the order in which applicants will be offered places. If you have not been offered a place for Reception 2024 and would like to appeal, please read the following Appeal Dates & Information Leaflet, Appeals Booklet and complete the following form.
Please do NOT use ANY other appeal form or send your form to your local authority. Those applying for a place in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 are advised to read the section in the appeal’s booklet which refer to Reception, years 1 and 2.
