Admissions

Pupils are welcomed into the school, regardless of where they live, provided room is available within the year group. Free transport is provided by the authority to all pupils who live more than three miles from the school and live within the Downlands catchment area.

This area includes parts of Burgess HIll (for Year 4 pupils and above), Albourne, Poynings, Hurstpierpoint, Hassocks, Goddards Green and Ditchling. Parents are advised to check with the Education Office at West Sussex County Council if they are in any doubt.

Many other pupils travel to the school from both East and West Sussex and Brighton and Hove. School times are arranged to fit into the normal coach and train timetables.

The school adheres to the Local Education Authority’s Admission Policy. All parents with pupils in Year 6 have received copies of this procedure. Copies may be obtained from:
