Admission Arrangements

If you would like your child to attend our school, the first step is to arrange a visit via the contact page or by calling the school office to book in on one of our Parent Tours. 

Please be aware that the Local Authority you pay your Council Tax to is the Local Authority you need to apply to for a school place .The particular Local Authority you reside in has no effect on your chances of gaining a place. You should only complete a form listing all your school preferences to your relevant Local Authority. Therefore if you pay Council Tax to Medway Council you should list your Kent and Medway schools in preference order and complete an online form at:

 https://admissions.medway.gov.uk/admissions

 If you pay your Council Tax to a Kent authority (i.e. Maidstone, Sittingbourne or Tonbridge and Malling) you should list your Kent and Medway schools in preference order and complete an online form at:

 www.kent.gov.uk/ola

 Each site has a side bar on which there are links to further information on the process and schools. As an ‘Eco-school’ we strongly advise parents to apply online rather than use paper forms. However, if you do not have access to the internet you are welcome to call into the school to pick up a Kent area application form, or call into a Medway area school for a Medway form should you reside in that authority

Places will then be allocated according to Kent Admissions criteria, which are as follows:

 

  1. Children in Local Authority Care
  2. Attendance at a linked school
  3. Current Family association (if still at original admission address or have moved and are still within two miles of the school)
  4. Health and Special Access reasons
  5. Nearness of children’s home and ease of access to school
