DfES report

How do you get in?

The admissions policy is determined by the Governors - they use the following criteria.

1. Catholic pupils with priest support - the Governing Body will require a written reference stating that the pupil and/or his family are practising Catholics who attend Mass regularly.

2. Catholic pupils without priest support. Within each of the two categories above, the Governing Body will take account of the following factors in order of significance: (a) sibling connection (b) Catholic involvement which emerges in the course of interview. Catholic involvement means, for example, that one or both parents or the pupil are involved in parish groups or activities eg. as Readers, Ministers of the Eucharistic, Server etc.
