Going to Secondary School in Year 7

If you would like to apply for a Year 7 place at King's Academy Ringmer, please read through the information on this site about our school, how to apply, the timelines for applications, and transition once a place is offered.

This is a big decision for both students and parents to make. We hope you choose the best school that suits your child.

Our advantage over other local schools is that we are so much smaller, currently, 610 students, which presents us with the luxury of providing a more personable learning environment. Everyone visiting comments on how calm, friendly and happy the school feels. However, being smaller doesn't mean that we can't provide the highest level of teaching and learning, alongside the very best of resources.

We have many students who join us throughout the school year, admissions who come to us because they feel their current school is too big or overwhelming, and find themselves lost in year groups of up to 300 students. At King's Academy Ringmer we pride ourselves on knowing every student individually and therefore can respond immediately if extra care is required; an ear to listen or the guidance needed to inspire the best efforts from the student. The atmosphere here is one of belonging, community, and of excitement for the future and what is to come.
