In Year Admission
If you are looking for a place at the Academy because you have recently moved into the area, or your child is at another secondary school and you feel that a change of school would benefit their education and/or general well being, you are entitled to apply for a school place. Please contact the Academy Admissions Officer to request an In-Year Admissions Form or download a copy at the bottom of the page. This form must be completed and returned to the Academy Admissions Officer.
Note: there is no guarantee that a place will be available but you have the right to appeal if you are declined a place.
More details can be found on KCC's website - www.kent.gov.uk.
