Great Kimble C of E School provides an inclusive, supportive and caring environment based on Christian values, in which children can learn, flourish and be motivated to acquire skills for life and a love of learning.
The governors have made every effort to ensure that these arrangements comply with the School Admissions Code 2014 and all relevant legislation, including that on infant class sizes and equal opportunities.
Although Great Kimble C of E School is an academy within the Great Learners Trust, who are the admissions authority, the Trust chooses to participate in the Buckinghamshire co-ordinated admissions scheme. Parents should apply for a school place to the Admissions and Transport Team at Buckinghamshire Council, County Hall, Aylesbury:
Details of the LA arrangements are in the Buckinghamshire Guide for Parents booklet, available online. The Guide explains how parents can express a preference for a school and give reasons for that preference. Decisions on which children are to be offered a place will be made according to the admissions criteria as set out in this policy.
Information about appeals is published by Buckinghamshire Council each year by 28th February on the above link. Their site also details the oversubscription criteria.

All Other Admissions and In Year Admissions
Admission to the school during the school year depends on whether or not there are places available.
All applications must be made via Buckinghamshire Council Admissions and Transport Team. If there is a vacancy, and there is no child on the relevant waiting list with a higher priority (according to the over-subscription criteria) a place will be offered.
