The local authority (LA), Tower Hamlets, now deals with all statutory admissions from Reception to Year 6, including in-year or mid-term admissions. If you would like your child to come to Old Palace Primary School please contact Pupil Services at the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.

Providing the school with proof of your address

When offering school places, the council will check addresses to prevent fraudulent applications. The school will, therefore, need proof of where you and your child are living. You will need to provide the school with your original full Birth Certificate, Council Tax bill or Council Tax Benefit letter or notice, and one of the following documents that show your address:

  1. A utility bill (gas, electricity or water) from the last three months. We do not accept a mobile phone bill.
  2. A statement from your bank or building society or a credit card statement from the last three months.
  3. Your Child Benefit entitlement letter from HM Revenue & Customs for your claim.
