School admission policies 2024/25

School admission policies for the school year beginning in September 2024.

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 apply to the majority of community and voluntary controlled schools in the county.

The West Sussex over-subscription policy for 2024 admissions and West Sussex coordinated scheme for 2024 have now been determined.

These policy and scheme are explained in the documents below:

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
  • Horsham community designated area: Tanbridge House School, The Forest School and Millais School (girls)
  • Davison CofE (controlled) High School for Girls, Worthing.

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 on the pages below.

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