Choosing and applying for a place at school is one of the most important things we can do for our children.

As a Catholic School, the Academy Council is responsible for setting the Admissions Policy and allocating places based on its criteria. The current Admission Policy can be found below.

Prospective parents are advised to read the Admissions Policy carefully and we warmly welcome visits to the school. It is also important to fill in the school’s own Supplementary Information Form and return this to school.

Applications for our Reception class for September 2024 opens on 1st November 2023 and closes on the 15th January 2024. National Offer Day is 16th April 2024.

The Local Authority coordinates the admissions process on behalf of the school:

Normal admission

In-year admission
