Admission to Tetherdown School is regulated by Haringey and subject to their admission policy. Priority is established according to the current admissions criteria, but the largest group admitted is likely to be those with a sibling already at the school. There is no longer a defined catchment area and most of the other places will be filled according to proximity to the school. There are places for 60 children in the Reception class. We now have two forms of entry from Reception to Year 6. Entry to other classes in the school (30 per class) is dependent upon the availability of places.

Such is the demand for places at the school that there is no guarantee of a place, even if you live quite close to the school. You may appeal for a place and should direct any enquiries regarding admissions to the School Admissions department of Haringey Council.

Prospective parents will be invited to book a school tour on dates in the autumn term. Please see below on how to book a school tour. When places have been allocated, all prospective parents will be invited to an information evening and to bring their children to visit the Reception class during the summer term prior to admission. Immediately before admission there will be the opportunity for home visits by Reception staff and the children will be admitted under a phased approach, usually within three weeks of the start of term.
