In Year Admissions
Applications for In Year Casual Admissions to Years 7 to 11 should be made on the form available to download from Kent County Council website via this link.
Application forms should be sent directly to the Admissions Officer at Hillview School for Girls.
In the event places are not available, applicants will be placed on a waiting list held by the school and ordered according to the over-subscription criteria.
Performing Arts places 2020
Hillview is a specialist school for the Performing Arts and 10% of places will be allocated on the basis of aptitude in the Performing Arts disciplines of Dance, Drama or Music.
This is assessed through tests carried out at the school, overseen by an independent assessor. To apply please view our application form by clicking here.
These places are not subject to the restrictions of the general over-subscription criteria listed in the admissions policy below, except in the case of children in local authority care. These places are very sought-after and we would request that parents do not apply for them if they are likely to gain a place according to the normal criteria (e.g. sibling or closeness to the school).
Full details of our Admission Policy 2019-20 has now been determined by the Governing Body and can be found below. For personal advice on your particular situation please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the attention of the Admissions Secretary or ring on 01732 352793 ext 173.

We are ideally placed for excellent transport links. Last year we were able to offer places to children who live up to approximately 8 miles from the school, including Sevenoaks and Ightham, Tunbridge Wells, Edenbridge and Kings Hill. However, our ‘catchment area’ varies each year, depending on the number of applications.
