This information is obtained from a medical database. Children are admitted to school at the beginning of the academic year in which their fifth birthday occurs.

The school has been oversubscribed in recent years and there are no spaces in some classes. Precedence is normally given to siblings, then to children living within the school's designated area and then others living outside this area.

During the term prior to admission, children are invited to spend some time in school with their teacher. During these visits, general information about the school is made available to parents who are able to observe the school in session and discuss our approach to the teaching of reading and writing and other aspects of early education.

In Year Admissions

If your child has already started another school and you wish to move your child to Sheddingdean, please complete the below application form. All in year admissions are processed via West Sussex County Council and they aim to process applications within 10 school days but it can take longer at busy times, for example around school holidays or during the Covid-19 pandemic, or if the information required is delayed or complex.
