Most Medway infant schools are paired with a junior school. This means children who attend the infant school have a higher priority for a place in the paired junior school than children that do not go to the infant school.

You can still apply for a junior school that is not paired with your child's infant school, but your child will be considered as a lower priority.

Transfer to a junior school is not automatic. If your child attends a Medway infant school, you must apply for them to go to year 3 in a junior school.
