Admissions & Appeals

 As a Voluntary Aided School St. Mary's does not have a catchment area - we welcome applications for school places from the wider area. The school has 30 places in each year group. St. Mary's Governors follow the published admission arrangements when prioritising placements for entry.

All parents are welcome to visit the school before they register their child. Please contact the school office on 01342 323858 to make an appointment.


If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.
