When applying for secondary schools you can apply for up to six secondary schools, listing them in order of preference. Consider each school's admissions policies and previous years' application rates to see whether your child is likely to be offered a place.

Your preference schools can be in Royal Greenwich or in other areas, but they can't be independent (fee paying) schools.

You don't have to list six schools, but the more schools you list, the better your chances of being offered a place at one of them.
