St. Mary of the Angels Catholic Primary School was founded by the Catholic Church to provide education for children of Catholic families.
Parents seeking a place for their child may download copies of the School's Admissions Policy and Supplementary Information Form from the school website or request that these be sent to them by contacting the school office. Parents are encouraged to visit the school by appointment.
As a Catholic school, we aim to provide a Catholic education for all our pupils. Catholic doctrine and practice permeate every aspect of the school's life. It is essential that the Catholic character of the school's education is fully supported by all families in the school. All applicants are therefore expected to give their full, unreserved and positive support for the aims and ethos of the school.
Priority will always be given to applicants from practising Catholic families in accordance with the over-subscription criteria stated in our Admissions Policy. Please note that allocation of a Nursery place does not guarantee a place in Reception.
