Secondary School Applications

Please be aware that applications for Secondary school places, in September 2024, are now open on the East Sussex County Council website. Applications opened on 12th September and will close on 31st October 2023. Any applications received after this deadline will be considered a late application and may result in your child not being allocated their preferred school.


Secondary schools are now holding their open days/evenings and a list of dates, we are aware of, is attached to this email. Please check school websites or contact schools directly for any further information. Pupils and parents are encouraged to attend these events to inform their decision, before applying. Absences for these visits will be authorised, all we ask is that you notify us of the visit.
