Late applications

This website allows you to make a late application which will be processed after all on time applications have been processed. If you have already submitted an application online you will not be able to make another application. In this instance please contact the Admissions Team on 01375 652883 or email on School.Admissions@thurrock.gov.uk to request an application form.

If you feel your application was late due to exceptional circumstances please provide evidence directly to the Admissions Team (address below). 


Use of your information

Applications will normally be processed on the basis of the home address for the child at the time of application and offer. The home address is considered to be the address at which the child resides on a permanent basis and/or where the child is 'ordinarily resident'. This is generally the address of the parent/carer with parental responsibility.  The adult with whom the child is 'ordinarily resident' would receive the child benefit for the child. 

Please include your Council Tax Reference Number.  The Admissions Team will cross reference the address you give on your application form against information we already hold about you within our Council Tax records.

Data Protection Act Statement

The purpose for collecting your personal details on the application is to allow the Council’s Admissions Team to process your application. Once the form has been completed the information will be stored in hard copy and on the Admissions Team’s electronic database. Access to the information will be on a need-to-know basis and will be archived until 6 years after the child's 18th birthday (before being securely disposed of).  The Council may share information about you in certain circumstances where the law allows. This could include sharing with other authorities and schools in order to process your admission application; or with external statutory bodies for the purposes of child protection or criminal investigations. Any sharing will always be done fairly and securely.
