Year 7 Waiting List - September 2021
If you wish to find out your child's position on our waiting list please contact our Admissions officer after 25th March 2021. We will not be able to confirm your position before this date.
- When the school is oversubscribed, after the admission of pupils with an Education, Health and Care Plan naming the school, priority for admission will be given to those children who meet the criteria set out below, in priority order:
- Looked after children and children who were previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to adoption, a child arrangements order, or special guardianship order. Place will be allocated under this criteria when places are first offered at a school and if the Local Authority asks the school to admit over their Published Admissions Number at other times under this criteria. See Appendix A Surrey County Council Protocol for admissions of children in care June 2012.
- Children who will have a sibling at the school at the time of the child’s admission. A sibling will be considered to be a brother or sister (that is, another child of the same parents, whether living at the same address or not), a half-brother or half-sister or a stepbrother or stepsister or an adoptive or foster sibling, living at the same address.
- Children for whom Chertsey High School is the nearest school (from the front door of the verified address given on the application form to the X marked on the map which will be provided alongside the application form and on our website).

Admissions Consultation – Entry September 2022/2023
Chertsey High School is consulting on changing its admissions arrangements for entry from September 2022. We propose to add a priority for children of staff and change the critrion 'nearest school' to 'distance from the child's home address'.
