Year 7 admissions
Harris Academy St John's Wood will admit 210 students each year. We have 210 places in Year 7 in September 2024 and welcome students of all abilities and from all backgrounds.
Applications for places will be made in accordance with local authority admission arrangements and will be made on the Common Application Form provided and administered by the local authority. The Academy will work to the common admissions timetable agreed by Westminster City Council. Admissions must be made via Westminster City Council only and not directly to Harris Academy St. John's Wood.
The Local Authority notifies parents about successful applications to Secondary School on 1 March 2024.
Year 6 transition (including Taster Day)
The transition from primary to secondary school is a big step. There's more about how we make the transition as smooth as possible in our Key Stage 3 curriculum page.
In line with the other schools in Westminster we will hold a "Head Start" day for new students on Friday 28th June 2024. The programme for the day will include a range of activities to reflect some of the subjects your child will study at Harris Academy St John's Wood. Further details will be sent to parents/carers nearer the time.
We also hold a family day on Saturday 8th June 2024.
