Applications for Year 7
The school participates in the Kent County Council Co-ordinated Admission Scheme. All applicants for a place in Year 7 at St Simon Stock Catholic School will need to apply online via Kent County Council.
In addition, please also complete the St Simon Stock Supplementary Information Form (SIF) if applicable. For example, if your child:
- has ever been in or is currently in public care (including outside England) or adopted;
- 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.
The Supplementary Information Form will need to be returned to the Admissions Office by 31 October.
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.
