St Francis Primary School


Choosing a school for your child is an important decision and we would encourage you to visit our school before making a decision. Please contact the school to arrange an appointment.

St Francis is a Catholic Academy school and our Governing board sets and administers its own admission rules after public consultation. 

Applications for admissions into our Reception class must be done on a Common Application Form (CAF) through your local authority. 

A Supplementary Information Form (SIF) must also be completed if applying on religious grounds and this should be sent directly to our school, along with a baptismal certificate. RBWM Admissions make offers of school places on behalf of our Governing body.

For In-year Transfer applications, please apply directly to the school. If there are any vacancies, the Governing body will offer places based on our admission arrangements.

Please refer to our school Admission Policy for the relevant year for which you are applying.
