Admissions

Our priority, as stated in our Admission Policy is to provide places for Catholic children from ages 5 to 11 for whom we are their nearest Catholic school. However the school openly welcomes and encourages applications from children from other faith backgrounds who are equally valued members of our school community.

As St Mary's is an academy, it is vitally important that parents complete the supplementary information form as well as the online application. The supplementary form must be returned to the school as the governing body will rank applications according to the admissions criteria for our school.

The school's current population, which broadly reflects the balance over the past ten years, is just over 30% Catholic children and 70% from other denominations. This balance provides for a rich community that shares and nurtures Christian values.

The planned admission number for Reception is 30.

Throughout the year there may be places available for pupils wishing to transfer to St. Mary's. Parents should contact the school for further information.
