School admission policies 2022/23

School admission policies for the school year beginning in September 2022.

Each school has a set of rules, often called an over-subscription policy or admissions criteria. If a school is over-subscribed it will use these rules when allocating places.

West Sussex community and voluntary controlled schools

The West Sussex over-subscription policy is the criteria that applies to the majority of community and voluntary controlled schools in the county.

The West Sussex over-subscription policy for 2022 admissions and West Sussex coordinated scheme for 2022 have now been determined.

These are explained in the documents below.

The main changes from previous years are outlined in the document below.

Further details about the decision are available on Modern.Gov.

There are some community and controlled schools where the criteria are different, which are given in the document. They are:

  • The Brook Infant School and Maidenbower Infant School
  • Castlewood Primary School, Horsham
  • Rose Green Infant School, Bognor Regis
  • Shoreham Beach Primary School

Academies, foundation and voluntary aided schools

The over-subscription policies and, where applicable, a supplementary information form and priest or church form, are available on each school website. Links to the website of each school are available in the Directory of West Sussex schools and establishments.

Alternatively, they can be accessed in the information for parent’s booklets and appendices linked below.

You must complete an online application, naming the school, as well as the school’s own form, or your application cannot be considered.
