Welcome to Seaford Head, the next stage in your child’s education, where we strive to achieve a happy, high quality learning community, and encourage students to be motivated and independent.
To help new students we have developed a strong transition programme with our Seaford feeder primary schools, which includes visiting students in their primary schools, as well as inviting all students to spend a week with us in July, before joining Seaford Head School in September.

If you have a child in Year 6, you MUST apply for a place at secondary school with by the deadline of 31st October 2020.
In order to enhance your chances of securing a place for your child at one of your preferred schools your application must be lodged via the home authority for where you live, even if your preference[s] are not for schools in your area. For example applying for an East Sussex school when you live within the Brighton and Hove city boundary, it is essential you apply via Brighton and Hove. Applications are then passed between the local authorities using a secure electronic link.
The preferred method for submitting applications is via the local authorities’ websites by following the links below:

As an Academy we must comply with statutory regulations regarding admissions. Seaford Head School has been oversubscribed in the past and the trend suggest this will be the case again this year. As a result, in previous years, some local applicants or those with siblings already at the school were not offered places as they either failed to apply or made an application after the 31st October deadline.
Any applications received after 31 October 2020 will be considered as being late. As a result any such application will be considered after those received before the deadline. If you do not apply on time your child will not be allocated a school of your choice if any of the schools listed are oversubscribed. Being a resident in the school community area or if you already have other children at the school, does not guarantee a place if your application is late.
You are entitled to give three schools as preferences. It is recommended that you do not restrict your application to one preference school. If your preference school is oversubscribed a place will be allocated at the closest school with spaces if no other preferences are given.
You may also wish to give due consideration to how your child will get to school as assistance with transport is very limited. Details are available on the East Sussex website at https://new.eastsussex.gov.uk/educationandlearning/schools/transport
If you do have any queries please contact the team at East Sussex to clarify your situation.
