In Year Admissions

The Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Multi-Academy Trust is the admission authority for all the schools within the Trust and is responsible for determining the admissions policy. On behalf of the Trust, the admissions are coordinated by the relevant Local Authority. All decisions relating to admission applications will be taken by the school’s Local Governing Body.

If you are applying on the basis of faith we also need you to complete a Supplementary Information Form which can be found at the bottom of this page. Please return the Supplementary Information Form, supporting evidence and application form at the same time. This will ensure your child is placed in the correct category.

Once an application has been made, it will be passed to the Admissions Committee of the Governing Body for consideration.

We aim to write to parents with the outcome of their application within 10 school days.

If you are unsure of what is required or if you need any further information please call the school on 0115 929 6251 and press the ‘admissions’ option.

Appeal Documentation

Following allocations, parents/carers may appeal if they are not allocated a place for their child at their preferred school. Requests for appeals must be made in writing and addressed to the Admissions Officer at the relevant school. Appeals must be received by the school no later than 20 working days after the date of the refusal letter. The Catholic Schools Appeals Service arranges all appeals on behalf of the governing bodies of the Trinity Catholic School. Appeals will be heard by an independent panel and the final decision of the panel is binding on all parties.

If you wish to appeal, please email stating your child’s details and your reasons for appealing. This will be received by the Admissions Officer who will then contact the Catholic Schools Appeals Service.

Please see below for the appeals timetable.
