Infant School Admissions - Reception

Thank you for considering St Martin’s C of E Schools for your child's education.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens when I apply mid-year for a place at St Martin’s School?

Your application is processed, and you will be offered a place if there is one available.  If we are full in the year group you require, you will be added to a Waiting List.  Waiting Lists are ranked according to each school’s admission criteria.

How will I find out what position we are on the Waiting List?

At the time you are added to the Waiting List we will confirm your position on the Waiting List, but this position can move up and down.  You can then call or e-mail to enquire where you are on the Waiting List.

Can my child go down the list as well as up the list and why?

Your child’s position on a Waiting List may go down as well as up, for example, if other children with greater priority according to the school’s admission criteria are added to the list.
