In Year Entry

An ‘In Year admission’ is the process whereby you apply for a place at a school if your child is already attending school and you wish to move them to another school.  The current admissions policy will apply, which can be found here.

Applications for admission to the school at any time other than the start of Year 7 should be made via the school by completing an In Year Admissions Form (IYAF). A copy of the form can be found below and this must be submitted directly to the school via post or email to:

Applicants will be tested by the school to obtain evidence of their ability to keep pace with the work at this selective school. Students will be tested in English, Maths and NVR and these will be based on material that your child should have studied according to the National Curriculum for her age group.

The school admits eligible students who are successful in our admissions tests where places are available in Years 7-9. Admission part way through the preparation for GCSE examinations (Years 10 & 11) is not advisable and would only be made in exceptional circumstances where a place is available.

Please be aware that places offered must be taken up within three weeks of the offer being made.  We are unable to hold places for longer than this time without there being very exceptional circumstances.

Parents will be advised of the outcome of their application by email. Should an application be refused, parents have a statutory right of appeal and they should write to: The Appeals Clerk c/o The Folkestone School for Girls, Coolinge Lane, Folkestone Kent CT20 3RB.
