In Year Admissions

In Year Admissions: Reception to Year 6

Demand for places is very high and means that we are unable to accommodate every child that applies. Whilst we welcome applications for admission from all faiths and no faiths, it is fair to point out that we are usually oversubscribed by Catholic children in each year group throughout the school.

The school's Governing Body has sole responsibility for admissions and each year publishes its Admissions Policy which specifies how Governors consider applications for admissions to the school. Before you make an application for the admission of your child, you are strongly advised to consider carefully the current Admissions Policy below. This sets out in detail how Governors manage the admissions process and the order of priority in which applications are considered. An understanding of the policy may assist you in avoiding the disappointment of a failed application.

Please return the SIF and supporting documentation to the school by hand and ensure you receive a receipt.

If the unlikely event that there is no waiting list and provided that there is a vacancy the candidate will be admitted. If there is a waiting list, then applications will be ranked by the Governing Body in accordance with the oversubscription criteria at section 2 of the current Admissions Policy.

If a place cannot be offered at this time the applicants will be provided with the reasons and will be informed of a right of appeal and given the opportunity of being placed on our waiting list. Each time a new child is added to the waiting list, the list will be re-ranked in order of the over subscription criteria. The waiting list will be maintained by the Governing Body in the order of the over subscription criteria and not in the order in which the applications are received. Names are removed from the waiting list at the end of each academic year unless applicants confirm they wish to remain on the list.

When a place becomes available the Governing Body will decide who is at the top of the waiting list and make an offer.

Any change in circumstances must be notified to the School in writing. Applicants may be asked to provide proof of address.
