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 all schools within our Trust to take effect for school admissions for September 2022. That is the proposed changes will affect new applications for entry into any of our schools from 1 September 2022 onwards. In this case the consultation period will run from 30 November 2020 to 11 January 2021.

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.
