Further information on school admissions can be found at or you can call Surrey's School and Childcare Service on 0300 200 1004. You can usually apply for in- year admission up to four school weeks before the place is needed.  For members of the Armed Services and Crown Servants who are being relocated to the area, applications may be processed up to four months in advance of a move - evidence of relocation will need to be provided.

There is a supplementary form for staff at Tomlinscote School w.e.f. September 2023 admissions for their children.  Staff should check the admissions policy for eligibility and contact the Admissions Officer at the school for the form.
