Admissions

From 1st February 2018,   St Crispin’s School became an academy school within a Multi Academy Trust (The Circle Trust). The Trustees of the Circle Trust are the Admissions Authority for all of the schools in the trust.

Our friendly helpful admissions team understand how important securing the right school place is for your child. We will work with you to make the process as smooth as possible and help with your queries. If you have any queries about admissions, please send an email with ‘St Crispin’s School’ in the subject title to admissions@thecircletrust.co.uk

 

Admissions Year 7

Admissions for Year 7 entry for 2025/26 must be made to your home local authority.

If you are considering applying for the Year 7 September 2025 intake at St. Crispin’s School, then the school must be named as a preference on your application to your home local authority.

The application process will open on 12th September 2024 and National Closing Date for applications to be received is 31st October 2024. Please contact your home local authority for further information regarding the admissions process.

Before you apply, please ensure you have read and understood our admission arrangements.

Outcomes will be provided by your home local authority on National Offer Day on the 1st March 2025.

If you are offered a school place 

If a school place has been offered, you will need to confirm your acceptance of this offer by the deadline provided within your outcome letter from your home local authority.

Once your acceptance has been received and the school has been informed of all those allocated for September 2025 you will be contacted directly by the school regarding transition dates and enrolment.

If you are not offered a place 

If we have not been able to offer your child a place, this is because there were more applications for the school than there were available places and not all requests for places could be met. Places are allocated in line with the admissions criteria published and your application was not ranked high enough to obtain a place.

For late applicants: If we have not been able to offer your child a place, this is because the school has reached its admissions number (the maximum number of children that can be admitted to the year group for September 2025) from the initial round of admissions

The Circle Trust can provide you with further information regarding waiting lists and details on how to exercise your right to appeal. You can also find this information within our reason for refusal document provided below
