Admissions 20-21


Children who are applying for a place in Reception at Darlinghurst for the next academic year can apply directly to the Academy or via Southend Borough Council.

After the end of August each year, the waiting lists are handed to our school and the admission process becomes the responsibility of Darlinghurst Academy. For more details of this admission process, please see the Primary Schools Admissions Booklet for the appropriate year. A copy is held in the office by Mrs Lowe, Admissions.

As Darlinghurst is an Academy Trust, all other In-Year admissions are handled by the Admissions Team here at school.
