Admission Policies

Year 7 (11+) Admissions

There are 90 places available for successful candidates for 2023 and entry will be by means of the Kent Test (11+).

For more details on applying for Year 7 please refer to the Kent County council website – http://www.kent.gov.uk/education-and-children/schools/school-places/kent-test

Year 9 (13+) Admissions

There are 38 day places and 52 boarding places (34 boys’ and 18 girls’ places) available for students joining the school in Year 9 for September 2022 entry. All applications, day and boarding, must be registered using the link to the Kent County Council application form by the 31 October prior to the September of required entry

In-year applications – It is unusual for the school to have any day or boarding places available for students applying outside of the normal round of admission into Year 9. Students who wish to make an ‘In-Year’ Application for a day or boarding place should contact the Registrar at Cranbrook School.

Sixth Form Admissions

Nearly 90% of our Year 12 entry is drawn from the school’s GCSE student roll.  Each year, however, we accept a small number of students from other schools.

Please be advised that we usually have a small number of boarding spaces for Year 12 entry and that this will vary year on year.  Only those students who have the highest predicted grades will be invited for interview when the registration period has closed and when we are confident of the number of spaces we can offer.

Please refer to our Day and Boarding Admission Policies in the download section for more details.
