Hurst Primary School

Please go to the Policies Section of this Website for our Admission Policy

On an annual basis we are required to confirm our arrangements for admissions.   Since converting to academy status our admission authority is now Hurst Primary School rather than the London Borough of Bexley. However, we have retained the admission criteria common to local community schools and full details are to be found in the current brochure ‘Admission to Primary Schools in Bexley 2020-21’ and applicants are prioritised in accordance with the school’s admission criteria.  This criteria is posted on the Bexley website and makes references to issues such as distance from school, medical needs, siblings and so on.
