We can admit 48 pupils in Year 3. The application process for a Year 3 place can be complicated and confusing to parents, so we have tried to simplify this below.
During Term 2 of the year previous to the admission of your child, we hold small tours of our school at various times and on various days, to try and accommodate everybody who would like to take a look. We also hold an 'Open Morning' on a Saturday when parents, carers and children are welcome to come and have an informal look around the school, join in with some activities and meet the school staff. We also have a virtual tour on our website, where you can take a look at our school
Applications for a Year 3 place can be made either on the official application form (JCAF) or on-line. The Local Authority are encouraging all parents to apply for a Junior School place on line, but for those who wish to apply with a written form, these can be obtained from any Junior School. A booklet giving these details, together with a list of all Kent primary schools, is also available for parents to view here at the Endowed, again during Term 2, if parents and carers do not have access to the internet. The application procedure generally takes place in January, with tours mentioned above taking place throughout November.
Those people who wish to apply for a school place on church grounds or any other special reason, would also need to complete a supplementary admissions form, which can also be downloaded from our website (see below). This form needs to be countersigned by your vicar or priest before returning direct to the school, with any supporting evidence that parents feel is appropriate.
For more information, please see our Admissions Policy which can also be viewed below. Our Prospectus can also be viewed on our website under the 'Parents' tab.
