Transfer to Secondary Education

You can submit your school application from 9am on 5 September 2022. Applications close on 31 October 2022 at 5pm.

To apply for a secondary school place you will need to:

  • apply through Medway Council if you live in Medway
  • apply through your own local authority if you live outside of Medway
  • use the child’s main address
  • complete an application for each child if you’re applying for more than one such as twins. They will not count as a sibling link for a place.

When applying you can:

  • name both Medway and non-Medway schools on your application
  • apply for up to 6 different schools in order of preference (not including private, independent or special schools)
  • choose to apply for less than 6 schools.

When applying remember we still cannot guarantee or give a child a priority place:

  • if you name just one school, this will not improve your chances of being offered a place at that school
  • if you name a school multiple times. It will only be considered as one of your preferences
  • if you have added your child’s name to a school’s expression of interest list
  • based on your childcare arrangements.

How to apply for a secondary school
