School Prospectus and Admissions

The prospectus for 2023/24 is available to download here.

Also available to download here is the Supplementary Information Form (SIF) and the Mid-Year Application Form

General Admissions Information
The Local Authority co-ordinates the school’s applications for the normal admissions round and further information can be found at or emailing

Mid-Year Application Process
All mid-year applications for school places outside the normal admissions round should be made directly to the school, using the mid-year application form (also available from the School Office).
Mid-year applications (sometimes called in-year applications) are any application for a school place made to a year group, apart from September admissions to Reception. For applications into existing year groups, a place will be offered when the number of pupils in the relevant year group is below the admission number for that year group.

Please note: If a mid-year application is received during a school holiday period, we will respond as soon as possible when the school reopens.

Whether applying for a normal admissions round or a mid-year place at St Thomas of Canterbury Church of England Primary School all parents/carers are required to complete a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) and return this directly to the school. DO NOT return the SIF to the Local Authority.
