How do I apply for a Reception place at Ramsgate Free School for September 2017?

If you would like to make an application for a Reception place at Ramsgate Free School please contact the admissions department at Kent County Council. For information on how to apply for a place in Kent go to or phone 0300 41 21 21 or e-mail for further advice.

How do I apply for a Year three place at Ramsgate Free School for September 2017?

To apply for a Year three place you will have to apply directly to Ramsgate Free School by filling out and submitting the application below. This means you will still apply to Kent County Council Local Authority with your 3 choices, but in addition you will apply to The Ramsgate Free School. The Ramsgate Free School application has no impact at all on your other choices – it is like having an extra first choice. If we are able to offer you a place, we will write to you at the same time as Kent (the beginning of March). This will be in addition to the place which Kent offers, and at that point you will need to decide between the two.


 The published Admission PAN

For 2017 and subsequent years hereafter Ramsgate Free School has an agreed admission number of 60 pupils for entry into reception. The academy will accordingly admit at least 60 each year if sufficient applications are received.

In Year 3, as a temporary measure for the year 2017/18 there will be a PAN of 60. In 2018/19 the standard entry admission point will revert to year R (the first year of primary education).

If you are applying for a year 3 place for September 2015, your child will currently be at an infant or primary school and will be in the year group ‘Year 2′.

How do I apply if I need a Reception or Year 3 place now?

Ramsgate Free School follows the process for Primary In-Year Admissions as published by the LA. In Year applications for Ramsgate Free School should be made direct to the school, using a separate copy of the LA single In Year Casual Application Form (single IYCAF) for each child and each school applied for. Please contact our school office for a copy of this form.

The school will inform parents and the LA if an offer can be made. If we are unable to offer a place you will be told how to appeal and how to place your child’s name on the school waiting list.

View our Admissions Policy.

If your child is due to start primary, infant or junior school in 2017 you can appeal between 18 April and 17 May 2017 to guarantee that your appeal will be heard by 19 July 2017.  For applications made in the normal admission round, appeals must be heard within 40 school days of the deadline for lodging appeals.  For late applications, appeals should be heard within 40 schools days from the deadline for lodging appeals where possible, or within 30 schools days of the appeals being lodged.
