New Year 7 Students

Year 7 of 2017:

We would like to take this opportunity to say what a successful start to the year our year 7 students have made.  They have settled well into life at The Weald and are showing great promise; arriving at school punctually, well prepared and looking smart in their new uniform.  They are polite, confident and eager to learn.  This is an excellent foundation on which to progress and we thank you for your continuing support in their positive, focused approach to school.

Year 7 of 2018:

Applications for students starting in year 7 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.

For all prospective year 7 students hoping to join us in September 2018 here are some important dates :

  • Tuesday 31st October 2017 – Closing date for all applications
  • Thursday 01st March 2018 – West Sussex County Council  Offer day
  • Tuesday 26th June 2018 – Year 6 Welcome day at The Weald
  • Wednesday 27th June 2018 – Year 6 Welcome Evening at The Weald

Every year we take a number of students from outside our catchment area, this ranges from 30-60. This gives students from outside our catchment area a very good chance of getting into the The Weald. If you live outside the catchment area please apply, talk to us on Open Evening and, if you aren't offered a place initially, stay on our waiting list. There will be a talk for all out of catchment families after each main talk on the Open Evening itself where we will give more information on this process and answer any questions.
