Admissions

St Anne’s School is a Catholic, Voluntary Aided Primary school in the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton. We serve the parishes of St Ann’s in Banstead and St John the Evangelist in Tadworth. The Governors aim to offer a distinctively Catholic education for children of rising 5 years of age to 11 years of age. They expect parents to uphold the Catholic character and ethos of the school. These expectations are reflected in our admissions policy, which gives full details of the criteria we apply when admitting children into the school.

Procedures for admission for 2018-19

For reception in 2018-19 there will be 60 places available. In the autumn term we offer parents who are considering making an application opportunities to visit the school in order to find out how we work and the education we offer. Any parents unable to visit at the advertised times are most welcome to make an appointment to see the school at another time. Our open mornings are from 9am to 11am on Thursday 12th October and Wednesday 15th November 2017. The headteacher will talk at 9:30am on each morning.

Parents who wish to apply for a place for their child need to complete two separate application forms. One is obtained from the LA (Local Authority, Surrey for most parents) in which the parents live. This form is normally completed on-line. The other is obtained from the school and enables us to collect the information we need in order to apply our admissions policy fairly. Both forms must be completed and returned before the published closing date for applications (15th January 2018).
 
Appeals process for entry in 2018-19
 
Parents have the right to appeal if their application for a place in reception at St Anne's in 2018-19 is unsuccessful. Parents need to contact the school by 17th May 2018 to lodge their appeal. Appeals are heard by an independent panel by 20th July 2018, with their decision being binding on the school and the parents.
