In a Voluntary Aided School the admissions authority is the Governing Body. In controlled schools it is the Local Authority. Admissions are a very important part of the work of the Governing Body and they must ensure they follow all the law, codes and guidance relating to it. These days this is done very much in liaison with the Local Authority and their Admissions Forum. This forum is made up of representatives from the Local Authority, governors, Head teachers, the Diocese and Archdiocese.
Everyone wishing to apply for a place for their child in our school must complete the common application form which can be done online. This is sent to the Local Authority in accord with the time frames laid out in the annual admissions booklet to parents.

In addition for our school a supplementary form must be fully completed and for criterion 3 and 4 it must be accompanied by a supporting letter from the Vicar/Priest of the relevant Church otherwise these criteria will not be considered.
