Admissions rules - how places are offered in East Sussex schools


We are now only allowing applications for school places in September. We will be asking schools to respond to these between 20–30 June. If you have moved and you require a school place sooner, please apply for the year group the child will be moving to in September and contact your preferred school(s) directly to discuss if they are able to offer you a place now.

4. If your child lives at more than one address

If your child regularly stays with another parent or relative and therefore has more than one address, the school place will be allocated based on the address at which your child spends the majority of weekday nights during term time – so this is the address that you should use on your application.

If you give two addresses, we will decide which address should be used as the main residence for the purpose of processing your application as we only accept one current address. We may ask for evidence to confirm the address given.

If you have any questions speak to the Admissions Team before making your application.
