Oversubsciption criteria

When Kings College is over-subscribed, applications for entry in 2022/23 will be ranked in the following order:

  • First Priority: Looked After and Previously Looked After Children.
  • Second Priority: Exceptional arrangements – as explained below.
  • Third Priority: Siblings at the College at the time of admission. A sibling will be considered to be a brother, sister, half-brother, step-brother, step-sister or an adoptive or foster sibling living at the same address.
  • Fourth Priority: Children of Staff. Priority is given to the children of staff where the member of staff has been employed at Kings College for two or more years at the time at which the application for admission to the school is made. The member of staff must complete the supplementary information form attached.
  • Fifth Priority: Student who live the nearest distance to the College at the close of the admissions application date. The distance is measured in a straight line from the address point of the pupil’s house, as set by Ordnance Survey, to the nearest school gate available for pupils to use. This calculated using the Admission and Transport Team’s Geographical Information System. In all cases proof of address must be provided. In the case of our services families a letter from the Commander is acceptable.
