Open Days for September 2022 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. Please can you email your intent to attend at: office@leigh.kent.sch.uk or call us on 01732 832660. Our two Open Days are on Thursday 4th November (am) and Thursday 18th November (pm). If these days are not convenient then please do let us know and we will arrange a mutually convenient time. We welcome not only yourselves but also your child/ren on these open days so they can view their potential new school.

 

School Virtual Tour

This virtual tour was created during the COVID pandemic when visitors were not permitted within schools by the prior headteacher and still provides a useful insight into Leigh Primary School.

 

 

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 on the 5th November 2021 and you will have until the 17th January 2022 to make your application.
