Tie-breaker

[Note] For oversubscribed local authority administered schools, we have given the criterion and distance of the last child allocated. If the tie-breaker was applied, we have stated the distance that relates to the furthest child allocated a place at the school within that admission priority. The links will show you a map of the tiebreaker area.

For oversubscribed schools which manage their own admissions, you will need to seek this information from the school. See Find a school in East Sussex to get contact details.

The table below shows the furthest distance from the school that a child was offered a place. The links in the table show you a map. 

Please note: we know these files might not be suitable for users of assistive technology. 

If you use assistive technology such as a screen reader, please contact us, and we will do our best to help. We will contact you about the next step.
