Admission Arrangements for Year 7 Entry
Following direction from the Department of Education and the Diocese of Rochester, Aquinas Church of England Education Trust, the admission authority for Bishop Justus CE Secondary School, is seeking to amend the already determined admission arrangements for 2021/22 for the academy. The amendment relates to how the admission criteria based on church attendance will be determined during the period when places of worship were closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The changes are detailed in the documents found here.
Should your church be without an incumbent (Vicar, Priest, Pastor) please ask the church warden, who needs to have known your child for 2 years or more, to complete our application forms. Both church administrators and Area Deans are also able to do this, again, having known your child for 2 years or more.

Admissions Arrangements 2021/22
As admission authority, the Aquinas Trust Board has considered the objections/questions raised during the consultation period, together with the academies’ responses and the views of the RDBE prior to making its final determination on the admission arrangements for 2021/22 for Bishop Justus CE School, St John’s CE Primary School, St Mark’s CE Primary School, St Nicholas CE Primary School and Trinity CE Primary School.
Having discussed these concerns fully, the Trust Board has approved all the proposed amendments to the admission arrangements for 2021/22 as it felt the changes proposed would not affect the strong Christian ethos, vision and values already embedded at each academy.
