Admissions at St Mary's 2021-2022

St Mary’s is a Roman Catholic Primary School provided by the Diocese of Salford and is maintained by Oldham Local Authority as a voluntary aided primary school.  The School’s Governing Body is the admission authority and is responsible for taking decisions on applicants for admission. For the school year commencing 2020/21 the Governing Body’s planned admission number is 60.

‘The ethos of this school is Catholic. The school was founded by the Catholic Church to provide education for children of Catholic families. The school is conducted by its Governing Body as part of the Catholic church in accordance with its Trust Deed and Instrument of Government and seeks at all times to be a witness to Jesus Christ.

We ask all parents applying for a place here to respect this ethos and its importance to the school community. This does not affect the right of parents who are not of the faith of this school to apply for, and be considered for, a place here.’

Parents must also complete the school’s Supplementary Information Form (SIF).  This must be obtained from the school or via the school website and returned to the school by the same date.
