Important Information Session for PARENTS ONLY

An information session for parents of children born between 1.9.13 and 31.8.14 has been arranged for Wednesday 20th June to start at 6pm with a short presentation. We hope that at least one parent from each family can attend. Even if you have older children who are already attending this school we do urge you to come to this meeting since admission arrangements do vary each year. We will be able to explain to you the arrangements in place for when your child starts school and give you other information about school. Please note this session is for parents only and children are not allowed to attend

If you have any queries about the Admission process please ring or come into school. You can also contact the Kent Admissions Team on 03000 41 21 21 or visit their website
