Admissions Arrangements

The Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Multi-Academy Trust is the admission authority for all the schools within the Trust and is responsible for determining the admissions policy. On behalf of the Trust, the admissions are coordinated by the relevant Local Authority. All decisions relating to admission applications will be taken by the school’s Local Governing Body.

Waiting Lists

Parents whose children have not been offered a place at a school in the normal admissions round will be added to the school’s Waiting List unless they have been offered a place at a higher preference school. The Waiting List will remain open until the end of the academic application year.  If a parent wishes their child to remain on the waiting list, they must re-apply each academic year.  The Local authority manages the waiting list for St Patrick’s Catholic Voluntary Academy.

Parish Maps

Initial queries should be directed to the school office, who will be able to answer most queries.  However if there is doubt, the school will liaise with the Diocesan Education Service who  will consult, if necessary, with  Bishop’s House where the definitive parish boundary descriptions are held.
