In Year Transfers

If you wish to apply for admission for any year group other than Year 6/7 transfer please refer to the  current Admissions Criteria 2021-22 .  To make your application you will need to read the CMA guidance, complete the 'In Year' application form and return it to The Admissions & Transport Team at Surrey County Council as instructed. The School will aim to notify applicants of the outcome in writing, within 10 school days of receipt of the application from Surrey County Council.

You should be aware that we are generally an over-subscribed school and we may not be able to offer a place. The school currently operates a waiting list. Waiting lists are ranked according to the school's admissions criteria, not the date the application was received or when the child's name was added to the list. Your child's position on a waiting list can go down as well as up. This is because other children who have greater priority against the school's admission criteria may be added to the list (for example, a child who moves into the area).

Waiting lists are automatically cleared at the end of every term, if you wish to remain on the waiting list you must email before the start of the new term. 

If you are not offered a place, and you wish to appeal please see Appeals section below

It should be pointed out that if your child has an EHCP (Education Health and Care Plan) and you wish to appeal, you need to apply through the Local Authority for admission as such cases cannot be heard at the school.

Please note that due to the volume of applications received, we cannot offer tours. You can find our virtual tour videos on the 'Tours of the School' section of our website.

If you have been unsuccessful in gaining a place at The Winston Churchill School and you wish to lodge an appeal, please visit the Surrey Schools Appeals website for further information. The Surrey Appeals Service administers the appeal process for The Winston Churchill School.

Alternatively, please call the Surrey Schools Appeals Service on  020 8541 8092 or email to request appeal papers.
