The Latymer School have written directly to all families with a child on their waiting list.

If the school is outside Enfield, you will either need to contact the local authority in which the school is situated or the school directly. Information will be on the local authority’s website.

If you want your child to be considered for a school that was not one of your original preferences, or was a lower preference than the school offered, you will need to complete a ST2 form (PDF, 89.95 KB). You should email the completed form to by 15 March 2023.


If your child was not offered a place at your preferred school, you can lodge an appeal against the decision.

It is likely that due to COVID restrictions, appeals will be held remotely.
