George Mitchell School is an all-through school which includes a nursery, a 2 form entry primary (60 places per year group) and a 4 form entry secondary school (120 places per year group).

Admissions to us are managed by the Local Authority. All pupils wishing to join should follow the  guidance from the Borough to select their school placements and return the forms to the admissions authority by the published date. If your child wishes to transfer to George Mitchell School mid-term, please contact Waltham Forest Admissions Service using the appropriate information https://branding.walthamforest.gov.uk/Pages/SearchResults.aspx?k=school%20admissions.  We are unable to accept any applications for a school place directly.

Where a school is oversubscribed the following criteria are used by the admissions authority to decide upon the intake for the school:

  • Statement of special educational needs
  • Medical conditions
  • Siblings currently attending the school
  • A son/daughter of a qualified teacher employed at the school
