ALPHA This is a new service – your feedback will help us to improve it.

What happens once you’ve applied?

Once we have received your application form, your child’s details will be sent to the school you have selected as your first preference to request a place.

If the school is full, the details will be passed to the next preference school and so on. If all school preferences are full, your child’s details will be sent to the nearest school which does have places available.

Children will be considered on a number of criteria and some will be considered by our fair access protocols.

Our fair access protocols ensure children who have not been offered a school place are found a place at a suitable school as quickly as possible and that all schools in Medway admit their fair share of children with challenging behaviour.

Schools carrying out their own in-year admissions will contact you directly.
