The Westborough School is an Academy and part of SEEAT (South East Essex Academy Trust.) It is its own Admissions Authority.
The school works closely with the Local Authority, Southend Borough Council, to ensure that there are adequate places for school children in the area and that admissions are treated fairly.
There are two separate Admissions Policies, one for the school and one for the nursery. This is because nursery education is not a statutory requirement, whereas all children are expected to attend school when they are five.
Admission to the nursery does not automatically guarantee admission to the school.
