Admission Information

Entry to The Judd School is through the Kent assessment procedure. Your son must have gained a "Grammar assessment" in the Kent PESE (11+) test to be considered for a place here at The Judd School.

Our Admission Criteria for September 2023 can be found on the 2023 Admission Arrangements page of this website. 

Once applications are received by Kent County Council via completed SCAFs (Secondary Common Application Forms), we are asked to rank the scores of those who have listed the Judd School in any preference position. Again, for this year we will be ranking two lists (Inner/Outer area) first by score and then distance, with 5 places for the Inner area for Free School Meal (FSM) student and if any of those places are unallocated they will be available to students eligible for pupil premium.

Our ranked list is then returned to KCC who make offers on our behalf on National Offer Day, Wednesday 1st March 2023.

When receiving queries from parents regarding the cut-off score for The Judd School this year, we can only refer to historic figures. For your information, therefore, only as a guide please find the historical information below. There are usually around 20 places allocated from waiting list(s), so it is well worth going on the list(s) if you are just below the initial cut-off score.

We do not yet know what score will be required for entry to our school; furthermore, we would suggest that no one is in a good position to declare authoritatively on the matter. What is clear is that the 'equal preference' scheme works well, and so we encourage parents to order the schools on their SCAF in their genuine preference order.

Should you not be successful in securing a place at the school, you can find out more information about the appeals process in the Appeals section of this website.
