This school Admissions Handbook is for 2022 - 2023.  The handbook for 2023 - 2024 is not yet available.  On the application form parents are asked to express a preference as to which Middle School they would like their child to attend.  Not all preferences can be met because there may be more preferences than places available at schools.  We are a feeder First School for Seaton Sluice Middle School.
