Mayflower Federation is a non-selective, state-funded school in the London Borough of Southwark. We welcome visits to the school in order to decide if this is the right school for you and your child. Over the Autumn term, many tours of the school are scheduled and you should contact the school office to reserve a place. Should you be interested in visiting the school at any other point of the year, please ring the main office to make an appointment. Should there be a vacancy in your child’s year group, then a tour will be provided.

The policy and arrangements for admission to the school into Reception are set out by Southwark local authority and are available here:

Admission into the school is typically at Reception (children aged 4 by September 1st of each year) and applications should be made to the local authority who allocate these spaces into the school.

If you are unsuccessful in your bid for a place in Reception, you have the right to appeal to Southwark local authority who allocate these places.

In-Year Admissions into Years 1 to 6

If you have just moved to the area with children of school age, please contact the school who will be able to advise whether there are currently any vacancies in your child’s year group.
