If West Sussex County Council cannot offer your child a place at any of your preferred schools, they will offer a place at your catchment school, if available. 

Or, if the catchment school is full, you will be offered a place at the nearest school to your home address with a place available.

You have the right to appeal against a decision not to offer your child a place at your preferred school and to place them on a waiting list. The process is explained by following the link below.
