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.

They must consider the admission arrangements for the Academy and the reasons why you want to attend that particular school.  The Panel must exercise its discretion by balancing the weight of your argument (for wanting to attend) against the Academy’s reasons for refusal.

The decision of the Independent Appeals Panel is binding on the admissions authority and the parents.
