Our Admissions Policy can be found at the bottom of this page.
In deciding where you would like your child to go to school, it is really important to find out as much as you can about the schools themselves. We offer tours in the autumn term for new YR places.
The local authority (LA) coordinates all admissions for children starting school for the first time and the link below will direct you to the Kent County Council website where you will find all the information that you require. If you have a child in any other year group, and would like to enquire about places, then please do so directly through the school office.
If your child is due to start Primary school in September 2023, you can appeal if you are refused a place at one of your preferred schools on National Offer Day (Monday, 17 April 2023).
You needed to submit your appeal before Tuesday 16 May 2023 for it to be considered by Thursday 18 July 2023. Any appeals received after this time will be heard within 40 school days from the deadline, or where reasonably possible in line with updated guidance from the Department for Education.
For late applications, appeals should be heard within 40 school days from the deadline for lodging appeals where possible, or within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged where reasonably possible in line with updated guidance from the Department for Education.
If you wish to apply under our faith based criteria you will need to complete an additional form called a Supplementary Information Form (SIF).
