In-Year Admissions and Transfers

For pupils who wish to join the school after the start of the school year this would be called an in-year admission.

If you wish to apply for a place you would need to complete an In-Year Admission Form which can be found here and return it to the School.  The School will respond within 5 school days with a decision.

There is no guarantee that The Whitstable School will be able to offer your child a place.  If no place is available you will be given the opportunity to place your child on the waiting list which is ranked in order of our Admissions Policy.  This does not prevent parents from exercising their right to appeal against the decision not to offer a place.

Special Aptitude Places

Each year we offer 10% of our spaces to children who demonstrate an aptitude for Music, Performing Arts or Art and Design.  Distance to the school for this method of admission is irrelevant.

If you would like to apply for one of our Special Aptitude Places please refer to the document below for more information.
