Consultation on admission arrangements for September 2025:


Every year schools and academies are required to review their admission arrangements. The aim is to ensure that the arrangements continue to be appropriate, and that they comply with all the relevant requirements, particularly the national code of guidance and the policy of the Archdiocese. The Kent Catholic Schools’ Partnership is consulting on proposed changes to the admissions policy for this school to take effect for school admissions for September 2025. The proposed changes will affect new applications for entry into any of our schools from 1 September 2025 onwards. In this case the consultation period will run from 14 December 2023 to 31 January 2024. You can find further information about the proposed changes at the following link  or by asking for a copy of the information at the school office.
