The West Sussex Local Authority control admissions into the school according to their Admissions Policy. The school has a designated catchment area for the Year 7 intake from two localities - Chanctonbury Schools (Partridge Green, Henfield, Ashurst, Steyning and Upper Beeding) and STARS Schools (Amberley, Ashington, Storrington, Thakeham, Washington and West Chiltington).
We welcome children from outside the catchment area to fill any remaining Year 7 places. This can be done through the normal school selection procedures for Year 7. We recommend you contact West Sussex Admissions for further information regarding transfers.
Our published admission number (PAN) in Year 7 is 210 on our Church Street site and 166 for our Rock Road site in Storrington. From Year 9, our intake includes an additional 15 boarders for which separate admission arrangements apply.
