Applications

 

You are strongly encouraged to arrange a visit to the school either on one of the open days marked in the school calendar or contact Miss Byrne in the school office on 01225 752006 or office@st-johns-trowbridge.wilts.sch.uk to arrange an appointment. 

 

For pupils starting from September 2022 the deadline for Applications is midnight 15th January 2022. The National Offer Day will be 16th April 2022.

Time to start school?
 

If you have a child born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018, then now is the time to apply for a place at our school for admission from September 2022 onwards. You must complete an application form that is available from the school admissions team of Wiltshire Council. Please ensure you apply by the closing date of 15 January 2022. If your child is Catholic, you must also provide a copy of the baptism certificate to the school by this date.

In Year Applications

 

An application can be made for a place for a child at any time outside the usual admission round. An application should be made to the school by completing the in-year admissions application form (link below) and returning it to office@st-johns-trowbridge.wilts.sch.uk along with, where appropriate, any supporting evidence.

 

All applications will be considered by the governing body and a place offered if one is available. Where there are places available but there are more applications than places, the published oversubscription criteria, as set out in the admission arrangements for 2021-22, will be applied.

 

Parents are advised to read the admission arrangements carefully before making their application. If your application is unsuccessful, you will be given the opportunity to join a waiting list and you have the right to appeal to an independent appeal panel. You will be advised of the outcome of your application in writing as soon as possible.

 

Whilst applicants must be informed of the outcome of their application within 15 school days of receipt, the aim will be to notify applicants of the outcome of their application within 10 school days of receipt. If you have any questions in relation to in-year admissions, please contact the school office.
