We do not operate any selection or aptitude testing as part of our admissions criteria. Any pupil who chooses this school has a chance of gaining a place. For this reason we are keen to allow pupils who wish to travel from further afield to have a reasonable chance of gaining a place at the East London Science School.
We operate three distance bands. One third places are offered to pupils who reside locally. One third of places for pupils from homes between 1.5 and 3km from the school and a third of places are offered to pupils from further afield. If any distance band is not filled we default to closest distance to the school.
Our full admissions criteria can be found under About us >> Policies >> Admissions policy.
Any queries should be directed to the school office on 020 8981 2680.
