Information for new Year 7 students starting in September 2018

Thank you to all students and parents who attended our Year 7 Welcome Day & Evening at the end of June, we look forward to welcoming students in September. A follow up letter will be posted home before the end of term.

Any questions regarding obtaining a place on  school buses from September should be directed to County Transport directly on 01243 753530.

If you have not already done so please return the green ‘Data Collection on Admission to School: Pupil Information’ sheet on this day at the latest or contact us immediately should you require a replacement.

Should you have any further queries or to make us aware of anything we should need to know please do not hesitate to contact us.

Our summer break starts on Wednesday 25th July until Tuesday 4th September, the school office will not be open during this time. We wish all new students and their families a restful summer break and look forward to seeing them on Tuesday 4th September 2018.

Applications for students wishing to join Year 7 in September 2018

Applications for students wishing to join Year 7 in September 2018 must be made directly with West Sussex County Council Admissions North. Information on the process can be viewed on the following link : or by contacting West Sussex County Council Admissions North on 03330 142903 or email on

Please note that it is the responsibility of parents to do this directly and you will not be prompted by West Sussex County Council.

If you have not been offered a place with us at this stage but would like a place at The Weald there is still a really good chance of this. Every year we take about 30 students from our waiting list after the initial allocation of places. This is due to students taking places in Independent schools or moving area. Nearly all our catchment students who wanted a place with us have been successful so the majority of places from the waiting list that are offered from now on will go to families outside of our catchment area. For more information and to be kept up to date with any developments in this process, please contact the school.

Every year we take between 30-60 students from outside of our catchment area. This gives students from outside of our catchment area a very good chance of getting into The Weald.
