Admissions

Maryland staff, our governing board and pupils would welcome you in applying for a place at our school.  The law requires that all schools must have admission arrangements that clearly set out how children will be admitted, including the criteria that will be applied if there are more applications than places at the school. Admission arrangements are determined by local admission authorities. We therefore follow the London Borough of Newham’s admission arrangements and processes. All applications for this school must be made through London Borough of Newham’s Pupil Services, not this school.
