Open Days for September 2021 Admission

If you are interested in your child joining Leigh Primary School in September 2021 then we have two dates set for parents and carers to view the school. Due to restrictions placed on schools during the COVID19 pandemic, you will need to book a time to have a tour of the school and you can do this by emailing the school office at: office@leigh.kent.sch.uk or on 01732 832660. Our two Open Days are on Thursday 5th November (am) and Tuesday 17th November (pm). If these days are not convenient then please do let us know and we will arrange a mutually convenient time.

The Application Process

You can apply for up to 3 schools, putting them in order of preference. It's in your best interests to list 3 schools. Naming only one school does not guarantee your child a place at a particular school or give your child priority for a place over another child, neither does naming a school more than once. You can apply online or by post. The application process will open in early November 2020 and you will have until the middle of January 2021 to make your application.
