OUR ADMISSIONS

If your child is already at School age

If your child is not on roll at a Medway school you need to complete an in-year admissions application.

If you would like a transfer from one Medway school to another for educational or other reasons, please contact our school office for further details. If you still want to transfer schools you will need to contact Medway School Admissions and they will advise you of vacancies, and provide a transfer form.

My son struggles with social communication.  He will not often take part without building a relationship first.  This is something Barnsole are working hard at promoting and scaffolding for him.

For 3 year old children in the Gillingham area, we have created a highly supportive nursery environment which encourages your child to play and have fun, developing a love of learning under the guidance of a qualified teacher.

We offer both 30 hour full time places (8:30am - 3:10pm) and 15 hour places Monday to Friday. These can be taken as 5 morning sessions from 8:30am to 11:30am, or 5 afternoon sessions from 12:10pm to 3:10pm.
