Starting School in September 2020

For the West Sussex online application process for children due to start in September 2020 please go to for further information.


You have the right to appeal against a decision not to offer your child a place at your preferred school and to place them on a waiting list.  Guidance about the appeals process can be found on the West Sussex website


Q.  Do I have to go to church or fill in a church form?

A.  No.  If we have a place then we will offer it to you.  Only if we are oversubscribed does being a “regular worshipper” affect your chances of getting a place and then a 'supplementary form' will have to be completed by you and your Priest/Christian Minister.

Q.  The Local Authority Admissions Office say that Central CE Academy may not have a place

A.  Please check with the academy.  We can tell you if we have places or not

Any other questions?  Please contact the academy office.
