Information from Secondary Schools

Selecting preferences for secondary schools can be a daunting process, especially when the usual opening mornings and tours are restricted due to COVID-19. To help you make an informed choice for your child we have collated information we have received from local secondary schools which is detailed below. We hope you find this useful. If you have questions relating to a particular school, please contact them directly.

The admissions process

There are a number of changes to the admissions process this year. One significant change is that parents may now name up to six schools on their application form, up from four in previous years. Furthermore, KCC will also allow parents to make changes to their application up until Friday 11th December. This date is after the outcomes of the PESE (Kent Test) will be emailed to parents.

Further information is available in this presentation from Kent.

If you have any questions about the admissions process, please contact the school office.
