How to apply for a school place

If you live in West Sussex your catchment school will be named on the letter from the Pupil Admissions Office. If you have not received this, please call 033 301 42903 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to find out your catchment school.
It is the responsibility of parents/carers to apply for a school place. You do not need to wait for a letter from the council.
You can apply online for up to 3 schools. You must rank the schools in order of preference. The first school should be the one you would most like your child to go to.
If you do not have access to the internet, either at home or at work, free internet access to make school applications is available at all West Sussex libraries. Library staff will be on hand to guide you through the process.
When you apply online you will receive an automatic acknowledgement that your application has been received.
