Application forms or on line applications are usually available from the beginning of September for entry for the following September e.g. if your child is due to start school next September, forms will be available from previous September/October. Applications have to be submitted by January and you will be informed by the council if your application has been successful usually by the end of March.


If you are a regular church attender you may want to complete a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) to indicate that you are choosing us because you wish your child to attend a church school; the SIF’s are available from the school office. The SIF has to be signed by the vicar or priest at your church to confirm your regular attendance. The SIF will only be used if we are over- subscribed.  In the event of over subscription we follow Medway requirements.
