Admissions Policy 2018-19

St.Thomas of Canterbury School is a Catholic Voluntary Academy in the Diocese of Hallam, working in partnership in the Our Lady Seat of Wisdom Umbrella Trust.

Our school provides a distinctive Christ centred, Catholic education for children aged 3+ to 11+ years, with priority being given to Catholic children who live within the feeder parishes.

The school’s Governing Body is responsible for admissions.  They are guided in that responsibility by the requirements of law; the requirements of the Trust Deed and each school’s Instrument of Government; by advice from the Diocesan Trustees and their duty to the Catholic community and the Common Good.

Please note that admission to one of the three schools does not guarantee admission to a Catholic High School, which will have its own admission policy.

Admission Numbers for 2017/18 are:
St Marie’s 30
St Thomas of Canterbury 30
St Wilfrid’s 40

These numbers have been calculated according to the capacity of the schools, which the law defines.

Please see the admissions policy below for more detail.
