Waiting lists and appeals

Waiting lists

If you applied for a place at Leigh Academy Rainham but have not been successful, you can ask to go on the waiting list.

Complete the Leigh Academy Rainham waiting list form by 5pm Wednesday 31 March 2021. Forms can be submitted after 31 March but may not be processed at the same time as those received on time.

If you have another school offer, you should accept it as well as going on the Leigh Academy Rainham waiting list. Refusing another offer will not give your child higher priority on any waiting list.

Your application on the waiting list will be considered on the school’s oversubscription criteria.

Waiting list places will be allocated from 19 April 2021 to 31 December 2021. If a place can be offered at any point during that time, you will be contacted.

If your child is still on the waiting list by 31 December 2021, you will be contacted with the next steps.

If you ask to go on the waiting list for Leigh Academy Rainham but change your mind, please email admissions@medway.gov.uk to let us know.
