Notes for all applicants:

If you state on your application form that your child is a baptised Catholic, we have a statutory right to confirm this information. We will write to you to ask you to provide a copy of your child's Catholic Baptismal Certificate. We may contact the local parish churches to establish baptism has taken place.  We need to verify your child's religion before the middle of February each year. However, we do stress that it is your responsibility to return a copy of the baptismal evidence by the date set, as this forms part of the school's published admission criteria. 

A full Admission policy is available below or by following this link. Copies are also in the Local Authority information booklet and from the school. 

Non-Catholic children are always most welcome to apply. Many of our pupils are not Catholic or of other faiths/no faiths. See our admissions criteria on the policy.

If you live in another local authority area (eg Wirral Borough Council area), you need to contact your own authority for an admission to our school, as each L.A. administers their own admissions. Details will be on each L.A. website.
