Sherwood Park Primary School obtained Academy status in 2014 which means that that the school's admissions authority is the Governing Body.  We have retained the admissions criteria common to local community schools and admissions are processed by the London Borough of Bexley Admissions Team. Please see the school's admissions policy for full details including information on our oversubscription criteria.

We recognise that every parent wants to be sure they are choosing the right primary school for their child. Usually we would strongly recommend that you arrange a visit to our school prior to completing your application form but due to Covid-19 lockdown and regulations we are unable to hold open days at this time. Please watch our virtual tour below, take a look at our prospectus and telephone the School Office for any information on 0208 303 6300.

Information on how you need to apply is available on the Bexley Council Website.

When the Local Education Authority has confirmed the allocation of places at Sherwood Park Primary, we will contact parents/ carers to outline our induction programme.  Parents have the right to appeal against a decision through the independent appeals procedure administered by the Bexley Admissions Team.
