Admissions

Admissions

We are an 'open' school in every way and warmly invite prospective parents and students to view the College during a normal working day.  Please contact Hugh Hennebry, Principal (prospective Year 7), Andrew Wright, Deputy Principal (Years 7 to 10), Helena Read, Deputy Principal (Year 11) or Geoff Evans, Deputy Principal (Sixth Form).

Admissions to UCTC are determined in line with East Sussex County Council policy. 

The arrangements for the admission of children to this school at age 11+ are made by the County Council.  A detailed description of the arrangements is contained in the booklet 'Applying for a school for your child 2012/2013'.  A copy can be obtained from the School Admissions Section, Education Department, PO Box 4, County Hall, St Anne's Crescent, Lewes, BN7 1SG (01273 481000).  A copy is also available for inspection at the College.  It is also now possible to apply for a school place online.  For more information, go to www.eastsussex.gov.uk/admissions.  Free internet access is available at any East Sussex Library.

Parents may find it helpful to know that, if there are insufficient places available to meet demand, these will be allocated in accordance with the following list of priorities:

i.     Looked after children;

ii.    Children with strong medical or exceptional evidence which leads the Director of Education to conclude that attendance at any other school would be inappropriate;

iii.   Children who will have a brother or sister at the school at the time of admission;

iv.   Children wishing to transfer between a linked infant and junior school;

v.    Children living within a predefined community area, prioritised if necessary on the basis of the shortest route from home to school using surfaced, passable routes;

vi.   Children living outside the predefined community area, prioritised if necessary on the basis of the shortest route from home using surfaced, passable routes.Admissions
