To apply for a place at Hersden Village Primary School, you must apply through Kent County Council admissions. Follow the link below to apply.
Once you have received an offer of a place and have accepted it, you will be required to complete the School Admission Form which can be found below.
The school fully supports parents who wish for their children to take the Kent Test. Our successful approach and support materials have led to a consistently high percentage of children gaining a place at Grammar School.
The school runs a parent information evening each year for year 5 parents. Although the school is always willing to advise and discuss the Kent test; it is the parent’s responsibility to register children for the test.
The school uses the BOFA software to assist children and prepare them for the Kent Test. A separate licence is purchased by the school to support parents with home revision.
Parents who wish for their children to enter the Kent Test will be given a log in and password to enable them to access the resources. This will be during year 5.
