Admissions overview

Cumberland Community School is an academy and part of Community Schools Trust (Multi Academy Trust) which means we are our own admission authority. However, we adopt the London Borough of Newham’s Admission Arrangements to ensure continuity across the borough.

 The staff, governing body and students of Cumberland Community School  would welcome you applying for a place at our school. To do this you must follow the correct process for your child’s age as detailed below.

At the Trust Board meeting held on the 9th February 2023, the admissions procedures standing for 2023/24 were approved to stand again for 2024/25.

Cumberland Community School has formally agreed to adopt the London Borough of Newham’s Admission Arrangements for September 2024 entry.

All applications for this school must be made through London Borough of Newham’s Pupil Services, not this school.
