Starting secondary school (11+)

You can name up to three different schools on your application form. Listing more than one will not affect your first preference and increases your chances of being allocated a place at a school you’ll be happy with.

Please read the Admissions rules – how school places are decided in East Sussex to find out what is and isn’t taken into account when places are allocated.
