Admission priorities for own-admission authority schools

school admissions4

This section sets out the list of priorities adopted by the governors of each own-admission authority school in Brighton & Hove. In the case of church voluntary aided schools, you will need to complete the school's supplementary information form and return it to the school. You will also need to supply a copy of your child's baptismal certificate if he or she has been baptised. If you want to know more, please contact the school.

City Academy Whitehawk will be using the Brighton & Hove City Council admission priorities.

If you wish to apply for more than one church voluntary aided school, you will need to supply this information to all such schools for which you apply. Please contact the schools if you are in any doubt about this.

When a church voluntary aided school is oversubscribed, the governors normally give the highest priority for places to children whose parents / carers can demonstrate a commitment to the religious faith of the school and then to those belonging to and practising within another denomination.

Please remember that if you show a church voluntary aided school as a preference and you cannot meet the most important criterion established by the governors, admission to the school may be refused if it is oversubscribed.

All information given is up-to-date at the time of publishing.

In some cases, the details given below have been edited for space. All essential information regarding admission priorities have been retained. If edited, this has been noted below. Should you require full versions, we recommend that you contact the relevant primary schools directly.
