Since September 2013, the law allows you to apply directly to Harris Primary Academy East Dulwich.  Please contact Admissions at the Academy, (contact details above) to request an in-year admission form, or download the form (see below) Please note that there is no guarantee that a place will be available, but you have the right of appeal if you are refused a place.

Parent(s) wishing to appeal against the Academy’s decision on admissions, for any year group, should complete an Appeal Form (see below) stating the reason for the appeal, based on the published Admissions Criteria.

Completed forms should be sent to the Clerk to the Appeal Panel at:

Harris Primary Academy East Dulwich, 173 Lordship Lane, SE22 8HA.

Completed appeal forms for Reception 2020 entry must be received by the Academy by the closing date 4pm on 18th May 2021.
