Application to Secondary School

It is possible to apply for up to four schools, putting them in order of preference. It is advisable to list four schools as naming only one school does not guarantee your child a place at that school or give your child priority for a place over another child, neither does naming a school more than once.

To apply for a school outside of Kent, name the school in your application along with your other preferences. Your application details will be passed on to the relevant local authority for processing.

For advice on the admissions process call 03000 412121 or email
