Year 7 Day Admissions


Cranbrook School will be offering 60 day places for Year 7 entry in September 2018. There are no boarding places available.

Registration for the Kent PESE Exam is required between 1 June and 3 July 2017.

For details on the application process please refer to the Kent County Council website:

All applications are to be made to Kent County Council (not Cranbrook School).

Applications need to be made between 1 September and 31 October 2017.

Offers have been made to 31 students for September 2017 Year 7 entry.

The lowest score offered in this first round is 346. Not all applicants on this score have been offered a place, with those living in the Preferred Area given priority in accordance with our Over Subscription Criteria.


It is very unusual for the school to have any places available for students applying outside of the normal round of admissions (i.e. entry to Year 7, Year 9 or Year 12). Students who wish to make an In-Year Application for a day place should contact the Registrar at Cranbrook School.

Please refer to our Day Admissions Policy for more details.
