Year 7 - September 2021

Applying for a place:

The closing date for a September 2021 start was in October 2020.

Applications for students starting Year 7 in September 2022 must be made directly with West Sussex County Council Admissions North. Information on the process can be viewed on the following link:
https://www.westsussex.gov.uk/education-children-and-families/schools-and-colleges/school-places/secondary-school-places/ or by contacting West Sussex County Council Admissions North on 03330 142903 or email on [email protected]

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

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.


If you've been offered a place:

A 'Welcome Pack' has been sent out to all students who were successful in obtaining a place at The Weald.


If you've not been offered a place:

West Sussex County Council will advise parents if they have been offered a place at The Weald at the beginning of March 2021.

Anyone who has been unsuccessful in gaining a place at The Weald should contact West Sussex County Council Admissions North to discuss the appeals procedure directly, this is not something that is dealt with at the school. We would strongly recommend speaking to them as soon as possible and request to be added to the waiting list.

Tours of the School

Unfortunately, because of COVID19 and in order to ensure the safety of our staff and students, we have decided not to run tours of the school at the moment.
