Applications for Year 7
The school participates in the Kent County Council Co-ordinated Admission Scheme. All applicants for a place in Year 7 will need to apply online via Kent County Council.
- is a baptised Catholic;
- has a sibling already at the school;
- attends one of our Catholic partner primary schools (for new Year 7 intake only);
- has a parent who is a member of staff;
- is committed to another Christian denomination or other faith.
Please return the Supplementary Information Form to the Admissions Officer at the school (not Kent County Council). For Year 7 entry in September 2024 please return this form to the school no later than 31st October 2023 in order that we may rank your application.
If applicable you must send a copy of your child’s baptismal certificate and/or Other Faith Reference, to the Admissions Officer at the school along with the completed form.
Please note failure to submit a completed Supplementary Information Form 2024-20205 when applying for a Catholic school place may result in your application not being placed in the correct category and could result in you not receiving an offer of a place.
Please note that if you are not offered a place and submit an appeal, a copy of the Supplementary Information Form will be submitted to the Appeal Panel.
St Simon Stock gives higher priority to baptised Catholics and those applying under the other faith categories who attend their place of worship on a regular basis.
