You can apply for up to 3 schools, putting them in order of preference. It's in your best interests to list 3 schools. Naming only one school does not guarantee your child a place at that school or give your child priority for a place over another child, neither does naming a school more than once.
To apply to a school outside of Kent, name the school in your application along with your other preferences. Your application details will be passed by Kent County Council to the relevant local authority for processing.
Applications will close on 15 January 2019 - if you miss the deadline please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be processed by Kent County Council between 15 January and 15 April 2019.
If you apply online Kent County Council will email you on 16 April 2019 after 4pm to tell you which school you have been offered. They cannot guarantee the exact time you will receive your email, this will depend on your email service provider. You can also log in from 5pm on 16 April 2019 to view your offer.
If you apply by post Kent County Council will send your offer by first class post on 16 April 2019. Royal Mail no longer guarantees next day delivery on first class post. Please wait 3 working days for your letter to arrive before contacting Kent County Council.

In year application
You apply for an In Year Admission if your child has already started school and you wish to move them to another school.
If you live in Kent and want a Kent school: complete the In Year Common Application Form and send it to the school you are applying for. You need to fill in a separate form for each child and each school.
If you don't live in Kent: you are free to apply directly to Kent schools using the In Year Common Application Form but may wish to contact your Local Authority to keep them informed.
If we are unable to offer a place your child’s name will be added to our waiting list. If you contact the school office you will be able to obtain information on where your child is on the waiting list. You have the right to appeal against the refusal of a place.
If a space becomes available, we will offer from our waiting list following our 'over-subscription criteria' which can be viewed on our Admissions Policy.
If you would like more information about joining our school please contact Mrs Helen Pearson, Admissions Manager, by telephone or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can find further information about the in year application process on the Kent County Council website.
