Applying for a place in Reception Year
If your child going to have his/her 4th birthday between 1 September 2023 - 31st August 2024 you will need to apply for a place at St Patrick's for September 2024.
St Patrick's is a Voluntary Aided School and our Governing Body is responsible for Admissions based on our Admissions Policy. We need to know which category each applicant falls under in order to place them in the correct order on the applications list sent by Southampton City Council. If you are applying to St Patrick's based on you or your child's faith, then as well as the SCC online application, you will need to complete a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) see the form below for 2024/25. It is vital that you attach any supporting documents, such as a Baptism Certificate, please see the Admissions Policy (below) for the school year you need.
Applying for a place for other year groups
If your child is currently of school age and is already placed in another school and you are applying to St Patrick's under a FAITH category (child's faith or the parent's faith) please complete the In-Year Supplementary Information form for the current Academic Year (2023-2024). You are also required to complete an "In-Year Transfer" via the Southampton City Council Portal: https://www.southampton.gov.uk/schools-learning/find-school/apply-school/in-year-transfer.aspx
Please note that school years run from 1st September to 31st August.
We are holding a series of Open Days for prospective parents in the autumn of 2023.
