St Bernadette Catholic Primary School

Reception Admissions


We offer 60 places in Reception and any number over that will be placed on an Admissions waiting list. Where there are more applications than the number of places available, places will be offered according to our oversubscription criteria which can be found in the Admissions Policy.


If you are interested in your child attending St Bernadette Catholic Primary School, you are welcome to attend our Open Morning. This is a fantastic way for you to begin to feel our caring and loving atmosphere as we pray, work, and play.


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch by emailing us at or telephoning the office on 01895 232298. We can photocopy supporting documentation  but we would prefer you  to scan or photograph the paperwork and email the paperwork directly to us.


Certificate of Catholic Practice

If you intend obtaining a Certificate of Catholic Practice from Fr Matthew Heslin,  his signing dates are Thursday 16th & Friday 17th November 2023 between 11-12pm in the Sacristy of St Bernadette Catholic Church. I would recommend downloading the half completed form from  this website, and complete the rest in readiness for Fr Matthew. He has requested that you bring along your child's Baptism Certificate.
