Online admissions for Medway residents – application dates Monday 17th September 2018 to Tuesday 15th January 2019 for children born between 1st September 2014 and 31st August 2015

You must apply to your local authority (ie if you pay your council tax to Medway Council you must apply to Medway). If you pay your council tax to one of the district councils in Kent (for example, Swale of Maidstone) then you must apply to Kent County Council.

You can name schools in any area but you must apply to your home local authority.

If you do not want to apply online and would prefer to complete a paper application form, please contact the School Services Admissions Team. Please note: Medway Council do not acknowledge receipt of paper applications in writing or over the phone.
