Transferring from another local authority or overseas
If your child is currently not attending a Southwark school (new arrivals into the borough and overseas applicants), and you'd like to apply for an in-year place at The Charter School North Dulwich, you must complete Southwark Council’s in year application form. You must then return the completed in year application form to Southwark, by email to inyear.admissions@southwark.gov.uk  who will coordinate these applications.

Students with a statement of special educational needs
