St. Mary’s is a voluntary aided school in the Diocese of Westminster. It is in the trusteeship of the Diocese. The school is conducted by its Governing Body as part of the Catholic Church in accordance with its Trust Deed and Instrument of Government, and seeks at all times to be a witness to Jesus Christ. Anyone is welcome to apply for a place at St. Mary’s, however, as a voluntary aided school with a religious character, the school exists primarily to serve the Catholic community and Catholic children always have priority of admission.

In addition to your online application, the school requests the completion of two forms, which must be submitted to the school office by the application closing date published by the Local Authority.
If you are applying under criteria A2 or A3, the Diocese of Westminster Certificate of Catholic Practice (which can be obtained through your priest) must be completed by the parent and the Parish Priest, and returned to the school no later than the application closing date.
