Q.  Do I have to go to church or fill in a church form?

A.  No.  If we have a place then we will offer it to you.  Only if we are oversubscribed does being a “regular worshipper” affect your chances of getting a place and then a 'supplementary form' will have to be completed by you and your Priest/Christian Minister. Copy of form below.

Q.  The Local Authority Admissions Office say that school may not have a place

A.  Please check with the school.  We can tell you if we have places or not and place you on a wait list.

Any other questions?  Please contact the school office.
