Primary Admissions

Every year we have a new intake of Nursery children and Reception children. Nursery children are able to start in the term following their 3rd birthday (subject to places being available); Reception children usually start in the September following their 4th birthday.

We also admit children into other year-groups, subject to spaces being available. For applications to all year groups you should contact the Local Authority.

Like all schools, if there are more applicants than places, we have to prioritise children in accordance with our admission policy.

Once a child has been admitted we invite parents and families to be actively involved in school life supporting their child and, through that, strengthening and enriching our local community.

Each year we hold open days where parents can come along and find out more about what life is like at St Paul’s Way Foundation School. If you would like to come to one of these sessions, please contact the Foundation School Office to find out more information.

Parents who are considering applying for a place are encouraged to contact the Foundation School office to arrange a visit.

Year 7 Admissions

The School is part of the Borough's admissions system. Parents should visit the School and come to our Open Evening. On all these occasions, the whole School is open and parents are encouraged to talk to students and staff. The Headteacher is delighted to meet all visiting parents.

When students have been accepted to St Paul's Way, they will all come to the School for a morning during the Summer Term to become familiar with their new class and the School when they arrive in September.

Sixth Form Admissions

After we have received your application we will contact you to arrange an interview where will discuss your A level course choices. Academic references supporting your application for A level study and stating your predicted grades will be requested from your current school.

Offers will be made on the basis of your interview, reference and predicted GCSE grades. Predicted grades must meet the general requirements for entry into the sixth form and also any special requirements for the courses that you have chosen.

Students who accept their conditional offer will be invited to a Welcome Evening in early July.
