Kent Secondary School Admissions 2017

Index

Last Updated: June 2016

Please note that this section is rather lengthy, and hence is spread across several pages. You will find the links below.

It is designed primarily for parents resident in Kent, whose children will be transferring to state secondary schools in September 2017. Parents considering a grammar school application should also look at the pages on Kent and Medway Grammar School Admissions and Medway Secondary School Admissions.

There is more information, advice and comment on the School Admission Code page.  You may also find an article I wrote in September 2014 helpful. 

I have wide experience of the secondary school transfer schemes in Kent and Medway, and am happy to place my expertise at your service, advising on choice of schools and patterns of application, drawing on my extensive local knowledge of the area and its schools. I give talks for parents at several Kent primary and secondary schools by invitation, and am also happy to talk with groups of parents, as well as individuals. For admissions you may well find my telephone consultation service useful.

You will find the full details of the Kent Secondary transfer scheme on the KCC website here (secondary determined scheme for 2017), together with next year's oversubscription and admission rules for community and voluntary aided schools here, and individual Foundation, Voluntary Aided Schools and academies here where, in the Spring of 2017 you will also find any proposed changes for individual schools for 2018.  A more readable online booklet sets out the full rules together with relating to admissions including residence rules, assessment for grammar school, applying for Kent schools if you live outside the county, school offers, late applications and In Year admissions, transport including the Young Persons' Travel Pass. Unfortunately, at the time of writing (June 2016) the 2016 Admission booklet has been withdrawn and the 2017 one will not be posted until September, although I have made representations about this.     

For parents applying for any school in Kent outside the normal admission round, including late applications after 1st March when you can put in an application for any Kent secondary school you have not previously considered, simply download an In Year Casual Application Form and send it to the school you are applying to. You will find further details here. This does not apply in the same way in Medway.
I liked the basic advice guide issued by parents at Kingshill Primary School.  You will find a simple comparative guide at www.192.com with my own information on individual schools here (some pages need updating, let me know if you are interested in one of these one and I will do it next)
