2020 Admissions

Thank you for your interest in our wonderful school.  We are justifiably proud of St Hilda’s, its students, staff and governors.  In 2015 St Hilda’s welcomed boys as well as girls into Year 7 for the first time and the school will become fully co-educational in 2019. The school prospectus is available from reception and the school website.

There are several admissions routes/criteria that parents/carers of prospective pupils may choose to apply under. Full details can be found in the admissions policy. ALL APPLICANTS NEED TO SUBMIT AN APPLICATION FORM (see below or collect from St Hilda’s reception).  We would draw your attention to the information box at the top of our application form which gives important information.

Your local authority website should provide information on preferences (equal preference scheme) and how places are allocated.

Appeals – Covid-19 impact, please click here.

As the appeals cannot be safely heard in person due to social distancing measures and in accordance with the updated guidance issued by the Department for Education which ensure that parents must continue to have the right to appeal to any school which has refused their child a place, we will be following regulatory changes that came into force on 24 April 2020.  The new regulations will enable the appeals to be heard by alternative means and subject to this the appeals for St Hilda’s are currently planned to be heard 3rd August – 19th August 2020.  This is clearly a very difficult situation for parents, pupils and schools but updates will be sent out to parents as this is rolled out or if the current social-distancing measures are amended.
