We maintain waiting lists for foundation and community places in years 7-11


It is possible to apply for an in-year place in Years 7-11. You will need to apply to the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea school admissions department for an in-year transfer, naming Chelsea Academy as one of your preferences.

You should also complete our in-year transfer supplementary form and send it to Chelsea Academy with evidence of the child’s current address.

If a place is available in the relevant year you will be offered one. If there are no places available your child’s name will be added to our waiting list. Waiting lists are ranked in accordance with our over-subscription criteria.
