We are a primary school catering for children aged 4 - 11. Children are admitted during September in the school year in which they are 5, in accordance with the school's admission policy, via the Kent Reception Common Application Form (please follow the link below).

Starting school process via Kent County Council

Children transferring from another school are admitted according to the admission policy providing that there is space in that year group. They must complete an In Year Common Application Form (IYCAF) which is part of the attached link to Kent County Council.
