Applying for a Place

We are a community school. Admissions to community schools are the responsibility of the Local Education Authority and applications must be made through their offices at:

Under the Education Act you can express a preference for any school but you do not have a right to choose a school. West Sussex Education Authority does however make every effort to meet parental preference where possible. Further information about how places are allocated at this, and other schools in the County, is contained in the Authority’s Information for Parents Booklet a copy of which is available from the school office or the Pupil Admissions Office. Further details relating to admissions can be found here:
