School Admissions

Admissions criteria

In September 2020 your child will be transferring to Junior School and I hope that you will seriously be considering sending them to Sandwich Junior School.

To apply for your child’s place at Junior School then please  apply online  at Kent County Council(applications open on 5th  November 2019 and close  on 15th January 2020). If you do not  have the internet then let us know and we will provide you with  a paper version of the online form to be returned to us.

Only one application should be completed i.e. either online or by paper.

Offers of places will be sent out no earlier than April 2020.  Our Published Admission Number (PAN) is 60 children per year group and the following admissions criteria will apply in order of priority:

1.    Children in the care of Kent County Council.

2.    Attendance at Sandwich Infant School.

3.    Current family association (i.e. a sibling at Sandwich Juniors at the time of entry).  Please state this on the form in the space provided.

4.    Health and Special Access reasons (for which a medical certificate may be needed).
