Views wanted on Horsham school admission changes


West Sussex County Council wants parents’ views on changes to catchment areas of several schools in the Horsham area.

If your child due to start school for the first time or transfer to a new school in September 2016 or you are affected by school admission arrangements the county council wants to hear your views.

As well as general comments on the arrangements, people are also being asked to give their views on the following:

• Proposal to remove the Kilnwood Vale development on the Crawley borough/Horsham district boundary from the catchment areas of Colgate Primary, Millais School and Forest Schools. Instead it would be included in the Waterfield Primary School and Ifield Community College catchment areas

• Proposed change to remove ‘in catchment’ sibling priority for families who were unable to be offered places at their catchment school.

Schools and parents are being asked to comment by taking part in an online survey at

The closing date for comments is Monday January 26 2015.
