General admissions information
The Local Authority co-ordinates the school's applications for the normal admissions round and further information can be found at Essex Schools Admissions
Applying for a mid-year place at our school (These arrangements take effect from the 1st April 2022)
All mid-year applications should be made directly to the school, using the mid-year application form available through the link below or the school office. Mid-year applications (sometimes called in-year applications) are any application for a school place made to a year group, apart from September admissions to Reception.
For applications into existing year groups, a place will be offered when the number of pupils in the relevant year group is below the admission number for that year group.
Please note: if a mid-year application is received during a school holiday period, we will respond as soon as possible when the school reopens.
The admissions round for children starting in September 2022 opened on the 8th November 2021 and closed on the 15th January 2022.
All applications received after 15 January will be treated as late and will only be processed after all on-time applications.
You are less likely to get a place at one of your preferred schools if you apply later.
Sunnymede is a warm and welcoming school and where possible we will hold 'Open Days' for those looking for a Reception place for their child. Details of these for admissions in 2023/24 will be released later in the year.
Please take some time to look around our website and read the information on this page to find out more about our school.
If you require a place for your child mid-year in any year group please contact the school office to arrange a visit to the school.
