How do you apply for a place at Hollington Primary Academy?


The Academy warmly welcome all applications for prospective new children. Most children join at the start of Reception during the Admissions Round. If you would like to apply for your child to join us outside of the Admissions Round, you can make an In-year Application. Details of both can be found on this page. 


Reception Admissions (Admissions Round)

Admissions Round applications are made direct to East Sussex County Council (ESCC) using their Common Application Form (CAF).
Please do not apply through the academy directly.

  • Admissions applications open: October 2021
  • Closing date for applications: 15 January 2022
  • Allocation letters and emails sent out: 19 April 2022
  • Induction days: Summer term 2022
