Choosing a school

You can list up to six school preferences when you apply for schools. This can include schools in or outside of Medway.

Before you apply, you should:

School age ranges include:

  • infant schools (year R to year 2): 4 to 7 year olds
  • primary schools (year R to year 6): 4 to 11 year olds
  • junior schools (year 3 to year 6): 7 to 11 year olds.

Paired schools

Most Medway infant schools are paired with a junior school.

This gives children who attend the infant school a higher priority for a place in the paired junior school.

You will still have to apply for the paired junior school as places are not given automatically.
