Kingston Community School is founded on the virtues of grace, love and fellowship, which creates an inclusive learning community where each individual is respected and valued. Although our school has a Christian ethos, we will not seek to admit on the basis of faith, and will operate an inclusive admissions policy (open to all faiths and to none).

At KCS we understand how important the choice of school for your child is for you, and we want to do everything we can to support you and give you all relevant and helpful information, so please do contact us for clarification if you require this.

KCS will admit 60 students to Reception in 2020/2021 and thereafter admit 60 students on an annual basis. This admission number relates to the year group of normal entry to KCS (Reception). Once admitted to KCS pupils will automatically transfer from one key stage to another.

When KCS is oversubscribed for any year group and after the admission of children with a statement of special educational needs or Educational Health & Care Plan that names KCS, applications for entry in the period 2020/2021. will be prioritised by ranking in order against the following criteria:

  1. Looked after children at the time when preferences are expressed and who are still in public care at the time of their admission to school, and those who have been previously looked after.
  2. Applications for siblings
  3. Children for whom the Chapel Street Community Schools Trust accepts that there are exceptional medical, social or welfare reasons which are directly relevant to the school concerned.
  4. Other children.
