Student Admissions

Entry for Year 7 for September 2022

Thank you so much for your interest in Pinner High School. We held ten different presentations for families in October to accommodate the interest in our school.

We received 1196 on time applications for 180 places for September 2022, making us the most oversubscribed school in Harrow for the third year in a row. Our last distance offered on 1st March 2022 was 0.55 of a mile. It was brilliant to see all our new students at the events we held on 7th and 8th March. We are delighted to welcome you to the Pinner High School family.

We know how important choosing a secondary school is for families, so you may also find our previous films are helpful on our Youtube channel. They give you a good sense of all that is involved in a Pinner High School education. Our social media presence on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn can also be a good insight into school life. You may also find our most recent school magazine a useful source of information. 

The admissions arrangements for 2022/23 are available below. The number of Year 7 places available and the over-subscription criteria are the same as now, as are the waiting list arrangements and the section reminding parents that providing false information could result in an offer or place being withdrawn. We have added a section about Sixth Form admissions because we have now admitted our first Year 12 students. The remaining changes are administrative (such as updating the relevant dates for the different academic year). 

In 2020 we were the most oversubscribed school in Harrow with 1170 applications for 180 places. On the 1st March 2020 the last distance offered was 0.7 of a mile, and we had a waiting list of 269. 28 of those families were offered places before 1st September, and the last distance offered rose to 0.76 of a mile.

In 2021 we are again the most oversubscribed school in Harrow with 1200 applicants for 180 places. On 1st March 2021 the last distance offered was 0.62 of a mile. Our waiting list was 249.
