If you are interested in your child joining St Mary's, please contact us to discuss what we have to offer and to arrange a visit.

How to apply

Most children join St Mary's at the normal round, the main intake into school from the start of September in Reception. As a parent, you can apply for a place via Cornwall County Council (details below).

There are different options for parents of children starting school in Reception. This includes part-time education and deferring or delaying admission until later in the Reception year or, for children with birthdays in the summer term, to the following September. Come and talk to us if you are considering this.

Do come and talk with us if you are interested in a place in a different year group for any reason.

For questions about your child joining the school or the admissions process in general, please do not hesitate to contact us direct or contact Plymouth CAST by email to Rose Colpus-Fricker (Chief Operating Officer) admin@plymouthcast.org.uk

If you are interested in your child joining St Mary's in-year (once the academic year has started), you can apply for a place through Cornwall County Council's Admissions Service. 

There is a right of appeal and to a place on a waiting list for places where an application is refused.

Once you decide you would like a place you must make a formal application to Cornwall Council Admissions Service:

W: www.cornwall.gov.uk/admissions

T: 0300 1234 101

E: schooladmissions@cornwall.gov.uk

If you wish to apply for a place with us using the faith criteria, please complete the Supplementary Information Form below. Please upload the form with your application to Cornwall Council.

The Supplementary Interest Form must also be returned to St Mary's as the governing body will rank applications according to the admissions criteria for our school.
