Waiting lists

Waiting lists will open from 22 March 2024 and from that date you will be able to check your child's waiting list position online. Your child will automatically be placed on the waiting list for any Haringey schools listed higher on your application. Applications for any school listed lower on your application have been automatically withdrawn.

Being on a waiting list does not guarantee your child a place at the school, and their position on the list could go down as well as up. Find more information on our Waiting Lists page.

To add your child to any waiting lists, or to remove them, contact Haringey School Admissions at the email address below.
