Admission Policy and Process

All admissions to the primary school are co-ordinated through the 'The School Admission Team, Department for People', Southend-on-Sea Borough Council, Civic Centre, Victoria Avenue, Southend-on-Sea, Essex, SS2 6ER. Parents must submit a completed application to the department who will then advise if a place is available at Hinguar Primary. Parents can request the brochure 'Primary School Admissions', produced by the local authority, which gives an explanation of the admission criteria and procedures. Admissions during an academic year are called In-year admissions.  Applications forms and further details about in-year admission should be made directly to the local authority. More information is available by selecting 'in-year admissions' on this web site.
