Additional Information

 

Applying for a place at our school during the school year (In-Year Admissions)

In Year Admissions are admissions to school which take place outside the normal admissions rounds (for Year 7).

If you are new to the area and require a school place or if you already reside in the area and you want to move your child from their current local school to our school, your application should be made directly to our school and the child will be admitted where there are available places.

Applying for a place with us

To apply for a place, please complete our In-Year Admissions form, (below) and return to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  Please also complete a Supplementary Faith Form (below) and evidence of baptism, if you would like your application considered against the faith criteria of the school.

If you have any questions in relation to in-year admissions, please contact us either by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by phone on 01695 725635.

You may ring the school office to confirm that the form (and any accompanying evidence) has been received.

Your application will be acknowledged upon receipt and we will advise you of the outcome within a maximum of 15 school days.

Where places are available but we have more applications than places, the published oversubscription criteria will be applied, to ensure the correct child/children are offered the places.

If there are no places available, the child will be added to the waiting list and you have the right of appeal.   Please see below for appeal information. Please note, that the waiting list does NOT guarantee a place at our school and if your child is currently not in education you should either make an appeal to our school and/or apply for a place at an alternative school.
