Applying for a place

Apply for a place at Chailey School for all year groups, during the academic year or for September 2020:

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 Emma Leaney, 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:
