Student admissions

Durrington High School is a popular and oversubscribed school.  We operate our own in-year admissions process which includes the management of our own waiting lists.   The in-year admissions operates for all students (years 7-10) who wish to join the school at any point after the commencement of the school year.  Admissions at the stage of school transfer continue to be coordinated through West Sussex County Council.

Should you wish to apply for a place at Durrington please complete and return the application form herePlease ensure this is completed in full and sent or emailed back (admissions@durring.com) as soon as possible. We will then be in contact to discuss next steps. Should you have any specific questions please contact Mr Kelly (Assistant Headteacher) who leads on admissions pkelly@durring.com.

For a small number of students including those who:

  • have an Education Health Care Plan
  • are currently in year 11 (or their date of requested admission falls within the year of year 11)
  • have needs or a history that means they fall under the WSCC fair access protocol

the admission request will be re-directed to WSCC for consideration through the appropriate panel process.

Please be aware that requests for admissions can only be addressed during term time. Our admissions policy gives further details on the oversubscription criteria and how requests are responded to and/places are allocated. It can be found here.

Should you have any questions please contact the school via the admissions email address or on 01903 244957.
