How does this work?

Once you have created an online applications account, you can apply for up to three schools for Primary Reception class.

St John’s Catholic Primary School also ask you to complete an additional paper form that must be sent directly to us – Baptism Certificate/ Letter from Mosque/ Temple of Faith confirming child’s religion.

Step 1

Find the schools you are interested in.

Read the relevant policies for each school.

If the school has supplementary forms download them, if available. Some other schools (mainly faith schools and some academies) require you to send additional forms directly to them (Baptism Certificate/ Letter from Mosque/ Temple of Faith confirming child’s religion).

Step 2

Register and apply online.

Complete and send any supplementary forms (Baptism Certificate/ Letter from Mosque/ Temple of Faith confirming child’s religion ) directly to the school.
