Applications for 'Faith' places
King's is an ecumenical Christian school, affiliated with the Church of England. Our admissions criteria allows for 50% of places offered, after those allocated to certain protected groups, to be given on a faith basis. To qualify for a faith place, families must be regular attenders at a Church which is a member of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland, or a member of the Evangelical Alliance for at least two years prior to application.
If you wish to apply for a faith place, please ensure you submit a Supplementary Information Form directly to the school, when you apply for a place. This form must be signed by your Priest/Minister. The deadline for submission of SIFs is 30th November 2018.
King's School follows the same timeline as Local Authority schools for applications, offers and appeals. The timeline for the 2018-19 academic year can be found below (taken from the Brighton and Hove Admissions website). Details for the 2019-20 application process will be available in due course.
