Admissions

Although we are a Catholic school we welcome members of all faiths and none into our community.  

‘When you walk in you just feel it’s great to be here!’

On this page, you will find links to all policies, forms and other information you may require to apply for your child to attend Our Lady of Lourdes School. It is important that you refer to documents which are dated with the academic year that you expect your child to join the school.  For example, if you are applying for a place for your child to start school in September 2022, you should look in the policies section labelled “Admissions 2022-2023”. If you are applying for an immediate place, you should look in the section dated with the current academic year.

For more information about our school, please see our “Open Events” page.
