You must submit your appeal before Tuesday 14 May 2024 for it to be considered by Tuesday 16 July 2024. Any appeals received after this time will be heard within 40 school days from the deadline, or where reasonably possible in line with updated guidance from the Department for Education.

If you are considering transferring your child to our school, please contact Primary Admissions for information on availability and waiting lists using the contact details below.
To apply for a place outside of the September Admissions process you will need to complete an In-Year Application Form. This form will need to be completed and returned directly to the office (which can be downloaded from the link below). Please note if your child is offered a place at Sutton-at-Hone, you will be required to provide your child’s birth certificate and proof of address (two for you and one for your child).
Late applications/Waiting lists/Multiple births: Procedures and arrangements for administering these issues will be in accordance with those detailed in the KCC’s booklet ‘Admission to Primary Schools in Kent’.
