The arrangements have changed for 2024-25 to include a new priority for children of staff employed at the school in question who meet certain criteria.  Parents wishing to apply under this priority will need to supply evidence that they meet the criteria prior to the closing date, otherwise their application will be processed as if they did not work at the school.

There has been a change to the community area for Eastbourne and Willingdon and maps showing the change can be found here:  Eastbourne area change map [1.3 MB] [pdf].  The area outlined in red will now form part of the Eastbourne community area for both primary and secondary schools.
