The admission arrangements for Coombe Dean School adhere to the School Admissions Code.  The Governors of the school are the admissions authority.

NB. Following consultation in relation to the feeder status of Hyde Park Junior School, the Governors of Coombe Dean School have decided not to include Hyde Park Junior School as a feeder school to Coombe Dean as doing so could result in an objection based on contravention of the Admissions Code.
