Although we are a Catholic school we welcome members of all faiths and none into our community. You are welcome to arrange a visit any time by contacting the office.
‘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 2019, you should look in the policies section labelled “Admissions 2019-2020”. If you are applying for an immediate place, you should look in the folder dated with the current academic year. Please contact the school office with any queries that the policy documents below have not answered.

We have 30 places in Reception. Last year, we received 25 applications which were allocated as follows:
|Priority 2 (Catholic children with siblings at the school, resident in the local parishes)||7 children|
|Priority 4 (Catholic children without siblings at the school, resident in the local parishes)||10 children|
|Priority 9 (Other children with siblings at the school)||3 children|
|Priority 10 (Children of other Christian denominations)||5 children|
|Priority 11 (Children from other faiths)||no applications|
|Priority 12 (Any other children)||no applications|
Occasionally families’ circumstances change, and fewer children than originally applied for a place start at the school. We therefore operate a waiting list and offer any additional places as they come up.
