Consultation on Admissions Arrangements 2020


In line with other schools and Kent County Council, the Skinners’ School is consulting on a change to its Admissions Arrangements for September 2020 in the shape of an extra criterion that would extend the prioritisation of Looked After Children.


We propose to ensure that children who were previously in care outside of England also receive the highest priority for admission to the school. We feel that it is right that these children should be on an equal footing as those children who are looked after and were previously looked after by a local authority in England.


We are also proposing to extend a priority for children on Free School Meals to include all children in receipt of the Pupil Premium. Again we feel that all children who receive the Pupil Premium should be on an equal footing when it comes to admission to the school.


If you would like to comment on the proposed amendments then please do so either by email to or to The Chair of Governors, The Skinners’ School, St John’s Road, Tunbridge Wells, Kent TN4 9PG.  All comments received by the end of Monday 10 December will be considered by the Governing Body at a meeting that is scheduled to take place in February 2019.
