Admission Arrangements for entry to school, 2021

Making an application

Applications for admission to the school for September 2022 should be made on-line at (search for School Admissions or cllick the link at the bottom of this page) between 1st September 2021 and 15th January 2022. It is not normally possible to change the order of your preferences for schools after the closing date.

Parents must complete the Local Authority electronic form, stating three preferences. Parents who wish their application to this Church school to be considered against the faith criteria should also complete the supplementary form. If the school is oversubscribed, a failure to complete the supplementary form may result in your application for a place in this school being considered against lower priority criteria as the Governing Body will have no information upon which to assess the worship attendance.

The Supplementary Information Form is available from the school.


For full details of how to apply for a place at our school, please see the relevant admissions policies below.  If you still have questions to ask then please do not hesitate to contact the School Office on 01772 794482.
