Admissions to Church Schools


If you are planning to apply for a place at a Church School for your child, and it would be helpful to have evidence that you are a regular church worshipper, there will be a sign-up sheet available at St Matthew's each Sunday for you to record your attendance.

At St Cross, please speak with the warden on duty.
