IMPORTANT - You must read all of the following information carefully before selecting the correct option.

Reception and Year 7

Holy Trinity School will be part of the Local Authority’s co-ordinated arrangements which require all parents/carers who wish to enter the school in Reception or Year 7 to complete a common application form (CAF) provided by the Local Authority. Copies of this form are available from the admissions team at Babcock Prime, Prime House, Woodbury Lane, Norton, Worcester, WR5 2PT or online here. Full details of the application process will be available in the local authority brochure: Information for Parents booklet. In completing the common application form Holy Trinity School must be listed as one of the preferences. Inaccurate or false information on the form could result in the place being withdrawn. Applications must be made by:

31st October 2021 - Year 7
15th January 2022 - Reception

 

All Other Year Groups

Pupils who wish to enter year groups other than those for which there are Published Admissions Numbers will need to apply directly to School Admissions, who, on behalf of the school and the Local Authority will co-ordinate these applications


The application will subsequently be managed according to the school admissions criteria and admission granted depending upon availability (in line with published admission numbers). In accordance with the School Admissions Code priority will not be given to children based on the date of application or the date of being added to the list, but rather on the basis of how the application meets the admissions criteria. Where a year group is over-subscribed applications will be handled in the way outlined in the section headed ‘Oversubscription procedures’.

The Co-ordinated Scheme can be viewed here.

Appeals

If any parent is dissatisfied with an admission decision they have the right to appeal to an independent appeal panel, establishing contact through the Admissions Authority. Holy Trinity School will run its own independent appeals. The arrangements for the appeals will be conducted in line with the Code on Schools Admissions Appeals. Appeals should be made in writing to the Chair of Governors of Holy Trinity School within 20 school days from the date of notification that the application was unsuccessful. He/she will then arrange for the appeal to be heard by an independent appeals panel. Once the date of the appeals process has been set, a notice period of 10 days will be given to the applicants. The decision of the panel will be made in accordance with the Appeals Code and will be final.


Due to changes to the admissions appeals regulations due to the Coronavirus outbreak (please click here for full details) appeals will be conducted entirely on the basis of written submissions and the appeals will be heard from the middle of May to the beginning of July 2022.


Please see the Admissions appeals timetable.
