Return your form to:  Admissions, Room 2.24, Sessions House, County Hall, Maidstone. ME14 1XQ.

The national closing date for applications was 31 October 2015. However, KCC will accept applications until 2 November 2015 to allow parents extra time to consider options following the Kent Test results.

You can apply for up to 4 schools, putting them in order of preference. It's in your best interests to list 4 schools. Naming only one school does not guarantee your child a place at that school or give your child priority for a place over another child, neither does naming a school more than once.
