Waiting List & Appeals

Children in library at King's Cross Academy Primary School

Waiting List

King’s Cross Academy operates a waiting list for each year group. Where, in any year, the Academy receives more applications for places than there are places available, a waiting list operates until the end of the academic year.

Until October half term, Camden Borough Council School Admission Team administers the Academy waiting lists for Reception-aged children. After that date, waiting lists are administered by King’s Cross Academy.

If your application for a place at the school is unsuccessful, you can ask for your child to be placed on the waiting list.

A child’s position on the waiting list is determined solely based on the oversubscription criteria. When places become available, they are allocated to children on the waiting list in accordance with the oversubscription criteria.

The waiting list is reordered in accordance with the oversubscription criteria whenever anyone is added to, or leaves the list.


All applicants refused a place have a right of appeal to an independent appeal panel constituted and operated in accordance with the School Admission Appeals Code.

Appeals Procedure

The appeals process for King’s Cross Academy is operated through Camden Council.  Information and guidance on how to appeal, together with the timetable for the appeals process, is located on the Camden website.

Appellants can only make appeals once offers and rejections have been firmed up. Appellants should submit appeals to Committee Services, Room 226, Camden Town Hall, Judd Street, London WC1E 9JE within 20 days of the date that they have been told that their child has not been given a place.
