How do I appeal if I am not offered a place?
The law states that infant classes must be limited to a maximum of 30 children which has an impact on how an appeal is considered.

There are only certain circumstances under which an appeal panel can uphold a Key Stage 1 appeal and if an appeal does not satisfy any of these conditions then it cannot be upheld in favour of the parent/carer.

The panel may only uphold the appeal at the first stage where: a) it finds that the admission of additional children would not breach the infant class size limit


b) it finds that the admission arrangements did not comply with admissions law or were not correctly and impartially applied and the child would have been offered a place if the arrangements had complied or had been correctly and impartially applied


c) it decides that the decision to refuse admission was not one which a reasonable admission authority would have made in the circumstances of the case.

The Crescent is next door to The BRIT School will children with evidence creative talent i.e. music, art, dance or drama be prioritised for admission?

Will it help them to get in if they have been to Selhurst Children's Centre?

If they attend The Crescent Primary will they be guaranteed a place at The BRIT School when they are 14 years old?
No. The BRIT School has its own Admissions Policy.

I have a child in another school but would like them to move to The Crescent, how can I apply?
If you are seeking a place at The Crescent you must contact Croydon Admissions team who hold our waiting list. They will be able to inform you if there are any places available.

How do I apply for a place for Reception?
If your child was born between 1st September 2017 and 31st August 2018 they will be eligible to start school in September 2022.
