Joining The Arnewood School – Key Stages 3 and 4

The transition between schools can be an exciting time but like any significant change in life can bring with it understandable anxiety. We do all we can to ensure children settle quickly into The Arnewood School and that they are embraced by a caring and supportive environment in which they will flourish. The Year 7 Admissions Student Booklet gives you a feel for how the school operates from a parental perspective.

We welcome applications from families with children attending local primary and junior schools. Our catchment link schools are New Milton Junior School, Ashley Junior School, Hordle C of E Primary School, Bransgore C of E Primary School and Tiptoe Primary School. Other applications are warmly welcome; children who have joined us from schools in Sway, Milford-On-Sea, Burton, and further afield feel equally well looked after.

Applications for Y7 September 2021 can be made online. Further information can be found on the Hampshire County Council Admissions website page.

Admission Appeals Timetable for Year 7 in September 2023

If you are changing your child’s school part way through Key Stage 3 or 4, or joining us part way through the Sixth Form, we are often able to find courses to fit those previously studied. Our Heads of Year are well versed in caring for new students and enjoy working closely with children and their parents/carers to ease the process of moving between schools.

If you would like to visit the school please contact the Headteacher’s PA and feel free to download or request our prospectus.
