How to apply for a place
Although we are a small village school, we take children from the wider area outside Penshurst Village.
The admissions process for Reception children usually opens in November and closes in January. You must apply for a place through the Kent County Council Primary Admissions website.
We currently have limited places across all key stages, please contact the office if you are interested in a place or would like to come along and have a tour of the school.
In Year Admissions
If you want to move your child to our school during the academic year, please contact Kelly Bennett to discuss the process and arrange a visit to the school. If there are no spaces available, you can put your child on the waiting list. Please complete the In Year Casual Admission Form below.
You can find more information on the In Year admissions process on Kent County Council website.
