If you wish to apply for a place within an academic year you must contact the school in the first instance and we will be able to advise you what your next steps will be. Please note, we have a waiting list and if we can not accommodate you immediately you will be placed on this list and contacted when a place becomes available. 

Parents requesting a church place will be allocated first followed by those with siblings within school and then those with the shortest distance from home to school.
