Application Process

Secondary transfer from primary school: Parents will receive a KCC “Admission to Secondary School” booklet from their primary school. This provides a detailed explanation of the process – parents can apply online or on paper.

2023 Year 7 Intake: Following the KCC Admissions process, parents are now able to apply directly for a September 2023 Year 7 school place. Please follow the 'In Year Casual Admissions' process detailed below.

In Year Casual Admissions: If you are moving into the area or want to change schools parents should complete an In Year Admission Form (IYAF) obtainable from KCC and return it to the school. A link to the IYAF is below:

Once we have received your application form you should receive a response within 10 working days. If we are unable to offer your child a place at that time they will be added to the waiting list for the relevant year group in accordance with our oversubscription criteria.
