Joining SBP 2022

Normally at this stage in the year, we would be looking forward to welcoming prospective children and parents to our new starters open days, where families can tour our school and get to know our staff. However, due to the unprecedented situation we find ourselves in this year, we are only able to offer a virtual tour of South Borough to those considering joining us in September 2022.  Whilst there can be no true substitute for visiting a school in person, we hope that the school website South Borough Primary School and the virtual tour will be useful for you when making the important decision of which school your reception aged child should attend.

The Application Process

The application process is administered by KCC and opens on Friday 5th November 2021 and closes on Monday 17th January 2022.  Please click on the following link when it goes live, to apply directly  KCC Primary school application.

You can apply for up to 3 schools, putting them in order of preference. It's in your best interest to list 3 schools. Naming only one school does not guarantee your child a place at that school or give your child priority for a place over another child. You are not able to name the same school more than once. 

Please refer to the individual school’s admissions criteria – South Borough’s criteria is accessible here:- SBPS admissions criteria.

National offer day will be on the 19th April 2022 when you will be informed of the school your child has been offered.

If you have any questions about our school, please contact our main school office.
