How to Apply

Applications Process for Students Currently at Judd

If you do wish to apply, our process is managed online through www.kentprospectus.co.uk. The application session opens on 14 October 2020 and the deadline for applications to The Judd School is midnight on Sunday 31st January 2021 and late applications will not be considered. Judd students will be issued with login details to enable them to do this. 

Students are expected to study 4 subjects in Year 12 and to continue those 4 into Year 13. Should a student wish instead to study either 3 or 5 subjects from the start of Year 12 then they will need to supplement their online application with a letter explaining why. Elite academics may be looking to study 5, elite sportsman or musicians may be looking to study 3. The letter should be sent to the Head of Sixth Form, Mr Vorster.

Applications Process for Students Currently at Other State Schools (within Kent)

If you wish to apply, our process is managed online through www.kentprospectus.co.uk. The application session opens on 14 October 2020 and the deadline for applications to The Judd School is midnight on Sunday 31st January 2021. Your current school will provide you with the letter which contains your log in details.

It is important to note that no offers will be made in the Spring. In the past, predictions have been sought from existing schools and offers made on that basis. Our new admissions policy instead makes offers only on the basis of results on the next working day following GCSE results day. Students must, therefore, submit their results to us on GCSE results day in August 2021 so that the oversubscription criteria can be applied. Failure to do so will mean that students can only be placed on a waiting list should others reject their place.

CRITERIA FOR THE ADMISSION OF STUDENTS TO YEAR 12 IN SEPTEMBER 2021

Students must have achieved a minimum average performance points1 score of 6.5 in their best 10 qualifications, or of all qualifications if fewer than 10 subjects completed. Students must additionally have completed a minimum of six GCSEs, including a 4 or better in each of Mathematics and English Language. 

Students additionally need to satisfy the requirements of their chosen subjects, which can be found in the Sixth Form Prospectus. 

Internal Applicants 

Internal applicants transfer to Year 12 provided they have met the criteria above. There is no upper limit to the number of internal students transferring to Year 12. 

External Applicants 

The Published Admission Number for Year 12 is 75 (external students). In the event of over-subscription, priority will be given to (in order):

1. Children in Local Authority Care or Previously in Local Authority Care 

2. Academic Ability 

This will be measured by ranked average performance points1 score in their best 10 qualifications, or of all qualifications if fewer than 10 subjects completed, the highest score being given the highest rank. 

3. Distance 

Where average performance points1 scores are the same, students will be further ranked by distance from home to school (with the nearest given the highest ranking). 

4. Random Selection

A random selection will be applied should two or more applicants have the same average performance points1 score and the same distance from home to school. 

Admission to Year 12: Further comment

As a direct consequence of the high achieving nature of our intake in Year 7 our teachers have high expectations and the standard of achievement throughout the school is very high. Most students have outstanding results at GCSE (of our present Y12 students, over half of all results are at grade 8 & 9 or equivalent at GCSE) and the character of the Sixth Form reflects this.
