Thank you for considering St Gregory’s for your child.
Year 7 students join us in September following their 11th birthday. Students also join us at other times and in other year groups (called ‘in-year’ or ‘casual admissions’). We welcome many new students, as well as current St Gregory’s students, to our vibrant Sixth Form.
Full details of our admissions for all year groups and the appeals process can be found in our admissions policy.
We understand that making sure you find the best school for your child is essential. Please, therefore, feel free to contact us to discuss how the school can meet the needs and aspirations of your child.
Applications for Year 7
The school participates in the Kent County Council Co-ordinated Admission Scheme. All applicants for a place in Year 7 at St Gregory's Catholic School will need to apply online via Kent County Council.
In addition, please also complete the St Gregory’s Supplementary Information Form (SIF) if applicable, for example, if your child:
- has ever been in or is currently in public care (including outside England) or adopted;
- is a baptised Catholic;
- has a sibling already at the school;
- attends one of our Catholic partner primary schools (for new Year 7 intake only);
- has a parent who is a member of staff;
- is committed to another Christian denomination or other faith.
The Supplementary Information Form will need to be returned to the Admissions Office at the school by 31 October.
St Gregory’s gives higher priority to baptised Catholics and those applying under the other faith categories who attend their place of worship on a regular basis.
In Year Admissions for Year groups 7 - 11
For applications in current Year 7 to 11, please complete the In Year Admission Form (IYAF).
Please also complete the St Gregory’s Supplementary Information Form (SIF) if applicable. Please see above.
Please return the In Year Admission Form and the Supplementary Information Form, if applicable, to the Admissions Office at the school.
Parents will be notified of the outcome of their in year application within 15 school days detailing any reason for refusal and information about the right to appeal.
