The UCL Academy opened in September 2012 and is committed to ensuring a balanced and comprehensive intake for the Academy.  We admit 180 students each year to the Foundation Level (Year 7) using the Common Application Form, adhering to Camden’s admissions timetable. The deadline to apply for Year 7 places for the school year 2019/2020 is 31 October 2018. Offer letters will be sent out by the Local Authority on 1 March 2019.

Please note that, as we are a popular and over-subscribed school, putting The UCL Academy as your first and/or only preference on the Common Application Form does not guarantee your child a place at the school.

If you believe that your child’s application warrants exceptional consideration, it is important for you to supply independent evidence to the school’s Social and Medical Panel from a reliable and verifiable source (for example, a clinical psychologist, paediatrician, educational psychologist ) and to make the case that The UCL Academy being the only school that can meet the child’s particular needs. For more details please write to us at
