Please see our Diary Dates page for dates/times of these events.

 

Feeder School

Our main feeder school is Stuart Bathurst Catholic High School which is also part of the St John Bosco MAC.

A summary of life at Stuart Bathurst: We are a Catholic School for all, and as such we will recognise and celebrate your child’s uniqueness, value their success and encourage them to “do and be of their best” at all times. We have worked hard to ensure that our pupils have access to first-class teaching from subject specialists. Our teaching staff engender a passion for learning by imparting excellent knowledge through a clear, well-planned and structured delivery of a broad and balanced curriculum.

Which Local Authority?

We follow the admission procedure laid down by Sandwell Local Authority which handles all applications for us on our behalf.

The application form for admission to school is a very important document, and has to be filled in online. You must make sure you fill it in as accurately and fully as possible. If you don’t do this, you may not end up with the choice of school you wanted. You may even end up being allocated a school place several miles away.

You apply via the Local Authority you live in, even if the school you wish to apply to is not in the same authority. For example, St. John Bosco Catholic Primary is a Sandwell school, but a parent who lives in the Walsall Council area may wish to apply to the school. In this case the parent would apply via Walsall Council.

The Local Authorities co-ordinate applications together.

If you are unsure which authority you fall into visit Find Your Local Council and use the postcode lookup, which will tell you what Council authority you live in.

If you don’t feel confident in applying for a school place on your own, the school can support you complete an application form. Contact the school office and ask to make an appointment with our Office Manager who will be able to help you.
