Admission Policy

On an annual basis we are required to confirm our arrangements for admissions.   Since converting to academy status our admission authority is now Hurst Primary School rather than the London Borough of Bexley.  However, we have retained the admission criteria common to local community schools and full details are to be found in the current brochure ‘Admission to Primary Schools in Bexley 2017-18’ and applicants are prioritised in accordance with the council’s admission criteria.  This criteria is posted on the Bexley website and makes references to issues such as distance from school, medical needs, siblings and so on.


Admission to Reception classes in September 2017/18


If your child was born between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013, it is now time to apply for a primary school place. 

The application period to apply for a place in a Bexley school ran from 1 September 2016 to 15 January 2017.  If you haven't applied for a place yet (ie you've missed the deadline), please contact the school office or Bexley Council's Admissions Team as soon as possible.  You will be able to apply for a place, but your application will be deemed as a 'late application'.
