Division One North consisted of 22 clubs, including 18 clubs from the previous season, and four new clubs:

Leyton withdrew from Division One North on 14 January 2011,[4] but expressed a wish to retain a team in the Youth League. At a meeting on 20 February this proposal was rejected and the club was expelled from the League.[5] The club's record of P19 W1 D6 L12 GF13 GA45 Pts9 was expunged on 24 February.

East Thurrock United won the division and were promoted back to the Premier Division after two seasons of absence along with play-off winners Wingate & Finchley. Waltham Forest were reprieved due to clubs folding higher up the pyramid, so no teams were relegated from the division this season.

Division One South consisted of 22 clubs, including 19 clubs from the previous season, and three new clubs:

Metropolitan Police won the division and were promoted to the Premier Division along with play-off winners Leatherhead. Bognor Regis Town missed out on the title by a single goal after a draw against Chatham Town on the final day of the season. The draw was not enough for Chatham Town to escape the relegation zone although they were later reprieved due to clubs folding higher up the pyramid. So, Horsham YMCA were the only club relegated from the Isthmian League this season.
