Occasional places

Home > Admissions > Occasional places

Places may occasionally become available in Years 8, 9 and 10. Numbers are typically no more than one or two per year group and places are not available every year. We do not admit children during the academic year after the beginning of the Autumn Term in September nor do we admit students into Year 11 or Year 13.

Registration of interest for occasional places 2024

Registrations of interest for September 2024 have now closed.  If you are interested in an occasional place for your child in year 8, 9 or 10 starting in September 2025 registrations will open on our website in May 2024. 

If you would require a means-tested bursary to cover all or some of the school fees, please notify us of this via the enquiry form above, and do contact the Admissions Team if you have any further questions regarding bursaries.

For entry into Year 8, candidates must have studied Mandarin, Spanish and Latin previously. If they have not studied this combination of languages, a discussion can be had regarding independent Summer work to catch up to the rest of the year group for the beginning of Year 8. All pupils in Year 8 study these languages.

For entry into Year 9, candidates ideally will have studied Mandarin or Spanish previously. If candidates have not studied Latin previous to joining Latymer Upper, this would not be available as a Year 9 option. Ancient Greek would be available as an option.

For entry into Year 10, Candidates must have been learning at least one of Spanish, Mandarin, German or French in order to take at least one of them as a GCSE language. A home language (i.e. one candidates are fluent in or speak predominantly at home) will not be considered for this purpose.

The availability of places is not usually known before February half-term of the year of entry. After this date, we invite interested parents to fully register candidates via an online link and payment of the registration fee (non-refundable). Following confirmation of your child’s registration, we will request selected school reports and references ahead of an entrance examination here at Latymer, Hammersmith.  We are unable to offer a remote or overseas exam for occasional places. Those who are successful in the exam will be invited to attend an interview. Please do not send reports prior to our invitation. We are unable to sponsor pupils who require a Tier 4 visa.

To register you will need to show proof that your child can live and study in the UK by uploading a copy of any relevant supporting documents such as passports/resident permit/visa. Unfortunately, if we do not have evidence that your child can live and study in the UK, we will be unable to make an offer.

Offers are typically made before the end of the Spring Term.

Any children who previously applied for Year 7 entry would normally only be considered for an occasional place if they were invited to attend an 11+ interview.
