Admissions

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 Governors are 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 visit the school. It is also important to fill in the school’s own Supplementary Information Form and return this to school. The Wakefield Local Authority coordinates the admissions process on behalf of our school. If you would like to visit the school and meet some of the staff to assist your decision making, we welcome visits from prospective parents and pupils, please contact the school office on 01977 798 303 to make an appointment.
