"Pupils know whom they can talk to if they have worries. They feel that their concerns are taken seriously. This helps pupils to feel safe."

Admissions Criteria

Places at our school are offered in line with our Admissions Criteria as set out in the document below. Although priority is given to Catholic children, children from other Faiths are welcome.

Applications that are supported by Baptismal certificates, signatures of Priests, Faith Leaders etc are given a higher priority than those without supporting evidence.

We will process your application within 10 school days. You will be informed in writing whether or not you have been successful in being offered a place. If you are offered a place, you will be contacted to arrange a start date for your child. If you do not wish to accept this place, we ask that you confirm this in writing. 

If your application is unsuccessful, you can ask to be put onto our waiting list and then we will use our criteria to place you in order on that list. If a place becomes available, we will let you know. The criteria is stated in the STCAT Admissions Policy on our website.
