Admissions

Admission arrangements

The school operates its admission arrangements as part of the coordinated admission scheme operated by West Sussex County Council. All parents are encouraged to apply using the online application system at www.westsussex.gov.uk/admissions.

Admission to the school at age of transfer in September is handled by the West Sussex County Council Pupil Admissions Service. The admission process for starting in September 2017 opened in September 2016 and the deadline to apply for a place was Monday 31st October 2016. All on time application places were offered to parents in March 2017 and the Pupil Admissions Service have since dealt with late applications. For more information, you can email them at admissions.south@westsussex.gov.uk. All main round offers for Y7 Secondary places are handled by West Sussex Pupil Admissions and then we then admit a student based on their offer.
