Information for families

As a Trust, our collective commitment to raising aspiration, helping our children grow, flourish and achieve their ambitions drives our work.
Each of our schools has its own unique and distinctive character and vision for its community, something we proudly celebrate and protect. Each offers a fantastic learning environment for its children supported by our unique curriculum enrichment offer/partnership with the colleges and business units across the EKC Group. 

We encourage you to learn more about their incredible work. 

Families are encouraged to visit the Academy with their child if they are planning to apply for a place.

To apply for a reception class school place (the September after your child turns 4) families need to complete the local authority’s (LA) common application form (CAF) and submit this directly to the LA or child’s primary school by the deadline. All the details are listed on the Kent County Council Website  We ask you to apply online, or you can request a form from the primary school or from the Local Authority.

Applications for in-year admissions are considered in the same way as those made at the beginning of the academic year and are dealt with in accordance the Local Authorities Fair Access Protocol. In-year admissions forms can be obtained from each Academy in the Trust.

For more on Admissions please see our Admissions Policy

Through our Trust and our EKC partnership we're able to provide inspirational opportunities for children to experience a wider and richer curriculum. Our children experience enrichment days including learning experiences in music, computing, construction and design, technology, hair and beauty, travel and tourism, business and many more sectors - accessing the resources, equipment and specialist staff of the Group to provide them with a whole range of new, exciting skills to support them in their learning. Industry experts also provide workshops and events within the schools, bringing the learning to the children.

For more on our inspirational enrichment days and a look at some of the opportunities our children have enjoyed see our Inspirational Enrichment Day page. 

Serving our communities is at the heart of everything we do. Throughout the year, together with our partners, the EKC Group, our children and young people and our colleagues, deliver a series of social action projects for schools, families and whole communities to take part in and enjoy. Learn more about our work to date and how your family can join in on our Community Hub
