Applications for children resident in Hampshire (not including the administrative areas of Southampton and Portsmouth) must be made to Hampshire County Council NOT individual schools.
Hampshire residents can apply online. After registering with a username and password, and supplying basic details about yourself and your child, you can name Kings Copse and up to two other preferred schools, giving reasons as appropriate.
If you do not wish to apply online, a Hampshire common application form is available from the school or the County Admissions Team and should be returned to Kings Copse or to the address on the form.
It is very important to apply on time in order that your application is not disadvantaged. Every year children miss out on a place at their parents’ preferred school, including where this is the catchment school, because applications are submitted late. This may mean that they are allocated a place at a school some distance from home. Late applications will be considered after all on-time applications, unless there are exceptional circumstances that warrant consideration.
At Kings Copse, we often receive more applications than we have places available. In this case, children will be admitted according to the oversubscription criteria set out in our admission policy.
