We welcome visits to the school, COVID safe, of course! Please see the flier below. We are hosting information sessions and a chance to see the Reception Class at 9.00am on the following Tuesdays:
October 5th 12th and 19th.
We can accommodate 4 sets of parents/carers at each session. We kindly ask that the school's COVID risk management systems are adhered to. Please see below further details on the admissions arrangements.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING YOU TO ST MARKS!
Admission enquiries are welcome for children who will be between 5 and 11 during the current academic year. Please contact us on 01273 605588 for details of places available for this current year. Transfers within a school year normally take two weeks to arrange and places are allocated for the next available half term. If you are moving house and the house move does not tie in with this timescale you will be able to start school in the middle of the term if a place is available. You should still complete and submit a Brighton & Hove City Council Transfer Form.
In the event that we receive more applications than there are places available, the order of priority for admission will be established using the appropriate Admission Criteria for that academic year and places awarded accordingly by the Admissions Committee of the Governing Body.
