Applying for a place in Year R

If your child going to have his/her 4th birthday between 1 September 2020 - 31st August 2021 you will need to apply for a place at St Patrick's for September 2021.  

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.  As well as the SCC online application you will need to complete a Supplementary Information Form (SIF).  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.

Open Days 2020

Due to the current situation we will not be running any open days as we have done in the past.  Instead we will be holding a series of "virtual" open days, which will be a presentation, virtual tour of the school and a Q&A session.

The virtual open days will be held on:

Wednesday 14th October at 3.30pm

Wednesday 11th November at 3.30pm

Wednesday 18th November at 3.30pm


Places must be booked (as the only way you can access the tours are through a link which is sent via an email) - please click here for further information and to book your place.

For those who miss the tours we will be putting a virtual walk around video tour of the school on this page very soon.

Applying for a place for other year groups

If your child is currently of school age and is already placed in another school please complete the In-Year Supplementary Information form for the current Academic Year (2020-2021).  You are also required to complete an "In-Year Transfer"via the Southampton City Council Portal:

Please note that school years run from 1st September to 31st August.
