Applications for St. Antony’s Catholic Primary School

In accordance with the Diocese of Brentwood and the London Borough of Newham’s Admissions Policy, applications for admission are taken annually in mid October. The Admissions policy for St. Antony’s is the responsibility of the Governing Body, who can allocate up to 26 places in the Nursery and 60 places in Reception. However, when there are more applications than places available, priority will always be given to Catholic applicants in accordance with the over subscription criteria, as stated in the Newham Catholic Deanery Admissions Policy.

The Local Authority admission form (available from the Local Authority) must be completed together with Supplementary Forms (available from the School) for a valid application to be recorded. Applications for places are recorded. Parents are given a closing date. Parents will be notified, by the Local Authority, of the outcome of their application.
