Admissions information for St Mary's Catholic Primary School


Admissions information for Reception children and pupils in other year groups

Time to start school? If you have a child born between 1 September 2019 and 31 August 2020, then now is the time to apply for a place at our school for admission from September 2024 onwards. You must complete an application form that is available from the school admissions team of B&NES Council. Please ensure you apply by the closing date of 15 January 2024. If your child is Catholic, you must also provide a copy of the baptism certificate to the school by this date.

St Mary's welcomes applications from everyone. We are a diverse community which reaches out to families who come from a range of religious beliefs and cultures, and each child is valued and loved by our caring and experienced team. Our 'Admissions Policy' criteria only apply in the event of oversubscription. You and your family are encouraged to arrange a personalised visit to the school and see what a wonderful place it is or attend one of our open events which are published on the school's home page.

The Local Authority website has the relevant application forms for pupils in Reception and other year groups.

Please find the approved admissions policy for September 2023 and 2024, and our in-year application form.

Appeals Information

If you are refused a place at St Mary's, you have the right under the Schools Standards and Framework Act 1998 (Section 94) as amended by the Education Act 2002, to appeal against the decision. It is your opportunity to present your reasons for preferring a particular school to an independent panel who will decide whether your reasons are strong enough to overturn the decision of the Governing Body.

Our appeals process is managed by Democratic Services at Bath and North East Somerset Council. Further information, including the timetable for appeals, can be found by clicking here.
