APPLY NOW for a Reception place for 2020

If you would like to arrange a phone call with our Principal Marta Correia, please email us at info@angloportugueseschool.org or call 020 3417 0905.

The admissions policy for the Anglo-Portuguese School of London satisfies the requirements of the School Admissions Code, the School Admissions Appeals Code and admissions law. Our admissions process will be inclusive, open, fair and transparent.

The Published Admissions Number (PAN) for the 2020 Reception intake is 60. In each subsequent year, as our school continues to grow, 60 pupils will be admitted to the Reception year, subject to the judgements of an independent appeals panel. As such, when full the school will have 420 pupils on roll.

In accordance with the law, children with Education Health and Care Plans will be admitted to the school where the Local Authority has specifically named APSoL as the most appropriate placement. In the event of there being greater demand than there are places available to the school, places will be offered using over subscription criteria in keeping with the School Admissions Code.

Rather than having a catchment area, the school proposes to take pupils from six nodal admissions points located in the London Boroughs of Wandsworth, Lambeth, Kensington & Chelsea, Richmond and Merton. For more details, please view our Admissions Policy. Should we receive more applications than we have places available, places will be offered in accordance with the stated oversubscription criteria as  stated in our Admissions Policy.

We are absolutely delighted to share the news that our Funding Agreement has now been signed by the Department for the Secretary of State for Education. The signing of our Funding Agreement is the official rubber stamp of confidence in our school and allows us to formalise contracts with the teaching staff and begin the procurement of goods and services ready for opening in September. The Trust is also putting plans in place to ensure that we open on time following COVID-19 measures/guidelines. Parents offered a place at both APSoL and another school via their local authority will now be required to choose only one of the schools offered.
