Admissions policy and arrangements

At Davison, we welcome applications, from all families, irrespective of faith background. Our 270 spaces, each year, are filled by students from within the town of Worthing and from considerable distances outside of the town. Excellent train and bus links make us a very accessible school for prospective future students.
