Applying for a place

Apply for a place at Chailey School for all year groups, during the academic year or for September 2021:

From 1st September 2014, schools became responsible for their own in-year admissions. If you would like to apply for a place at Chailey School, then please email Mrs Sarah Bodner, School Administrator on office@chaileyschool.org with the name, DOB, year group of entry, reason for leaving last school and any additional needs. You will then need to apply for a place through ESCC. Information is available on the link below:

We look forward to welcoming you.

Applications to move to secondary school from Year 6 must be submitted to East Sussex County Council and not direct to the School. These applications can be submitted online via the East Sussex County Council website by following this link:
