This Sunday, October 31, is the final deadline for parents in Hammersmith and Fulham to apply for next year's secondary school places for their children.

Though the council has urged parents to apply early to speed up the process, in these last few days, those who have not yet done so can still make late applications by applying online.

Parents can apply for up to six state school places in any London borough, listed in order of preference.

Each of the school's admissions criteria are different and many of the borough's schools are oversubscribed, so parents are asked to consider their choices carefully.

Cabinet member for children's services, Cllr Helen Binmore, says: "The future of schools in H&F is looking promising - the new Hammersmith Academy will be welcoming its first students next year, the federation between Fulham Cross and Henry Compton will be in full flow, and many of our schools will have their sixth forms in place too, with new buildings."
