Children will be admitted at age 11, which is the College's relevant age group, without reference to aptitude or ability. The College's Planned Admission Number (PAN) for Year 7 is 300.

Where applications for admission exceed the number of places available, the following admissions criteria will be applied in the order set out below, to decide which children to admit.


Once children with statements of special educational need have been admitted to The College then places are allocated in accordance with the following oversubscription rules:

Criterion A

Children in care for who the Local Authority decides The Chalfonts Community College is the most appropriate.

Criterion B

Those living in The Chalfont Community College's catchment area comprising the civil parishes of Chalfont St Peter, Chalfont St Giles, Gerrards Cross, The Denhams, Stoke Poges, Iver and Iver Heath. A map of the area is available at the College.

Criterion C

Siblings of children who will still be at the College, in Years 7 to 11 , on the child's date of admission.

A sibling is a brother or sister, which for admissions purposes means brothers and sisters of whole or half blood or any other child (including an adopted child) who permanently resides at the same address and for whom the parent also has parental responsibility. A pupil in the College will only count to provide a priority to a sibling if he or she will be attending the College in Year 7 to Year 11 at the time of admission of the sibling.

Criterion D

Those living outside The Chalfonts Community College's catchment area, other than students covered by Criterion C above.

In the event of over-subscription, once the admissions criteria have been applied, then any further places will be awarded according to the distance between the family's normal home address and the College's nearest entrance gate: closest first.

The shortest appropriate route will be measured using the Buckinghamshire County Council's method.


Governors have agreed to process applications for admission to The Chalfonts Community College according to the Co-ordinated Admissions Scheme managed by Buckinghamshire County Council Education Authority.

All unsuccessful applicants will have the right of appeal to an independent appeal panel. The independent appeal panel can instruct the College to offer more places than the College's Planned Admission Number of 300. The decision of the independent panel is binding on the College and the parent .


To make an application for a place at the College, please complete the relevant form(s) in the Buckinghamshire County Councils ‘Guide for Parents'. If you have not already got a copy, please contact the Admissions team at Buckinghamshire County Council (contact details are below).

If your child currently attends a Buckinghamshire County Council school you should return your completed forms to your child's current school. If you are applying for a place out of the normal admissions' timetable, then you should return your forms directly to the admissions team at the address below. If your child is attending a school that is not a Buckinghamshire County Council school, then you should return your forms directly to your own Local Education Authority.


An application form can be obtained from the College reception (Tel. 01753 882032) or downloaded from our website at and returned to the College.
