Supplementary Information and Church Reference Form

What happens if you apply late?
It is less likely that you will be offered a place at one of your preferred schools and you may have to wait to get an offer after National Offer Day. If there is a good reason why the school application is late, we will consider it as on time if we receive it by 8th March. You must provide independent supporting evidence of the good reason, or your application will be treated
as late.

Please see the Brighton and Hove website:
Brighton and Hove - Late Applications

In-year Applications (for entry before September)

our Supplementary Information and Church Reference Form (see below) and also apply to Brighton and Hove School Admissions. The over-subscription criteria will apply.
