About Our School Admissions

All parents want to choose the right school for their child and we encourage parents to visit our school so that they have a good understanding of our provision and our ethos. Dates for our open days will be published in our newsletter or in the parish newsletter, please telephone the school office to book your place for these tours.

If you are applying for a place in next year’s Reception Classes you should complete Southend Borough Council’s Single Application Form (SAF) which must be submitted to them by 15th January 2019. The best way to apply is online at but if you require a paper application these can be obtained from the Civic Centre, Victoria Avenue, Southend.

You must also complete our Supplementary Information Form (SIF) and if you are a practising Catholic, please ask your Priest for a completed Certificate of Practice, and these, along with a copy of your child’s Baptismal certificate (if applicable) should be submitted to our school office by 22nd January 2019. (See admissions section of our Prospectus for full details).  Details of the definition of Catholic practice is given here

If you are applying for a place in any other school year you DO NOT need to complete the Council’s form unless you are applying for a Year 3 place in the determined admissions round.



If your child’s school admission application was unsuccessful you may wish to appeal against this decision.  Information on how to begin the appeals process is detailed in the link below
