St Thomas' is a popular school. We have a Pupil Admission Number (PAN) of 35 in each year group. This means we admit 35 into our Reception class each September. A very large majority of children who start with us in Reception stay at the school until the end of Year 6, when most then move on to our feeder Catholic Secondary school, St John Houghton (http://www.st-johnhoughton.derbyshire.sch.uk/). This means that we rarely have spaces for in year admissions or for admission into Year 3 from infant schools.
Please follow the link below for information about planned admissions in 2020/21. This is a link to a consultation that will take place from 2rd December 2018 until 14th January 2019.
The significant changes to the policies are:
· Amendment to the definition of ‘other Christians’ applied within the oversubscription criteria
· Amendment to the definition of ‘other faiths’ applied within the oversubscription criteria
To support your application that is made to Derbyshire County Council, as a faith school, we require a Supplementary Form with details of any faith reasons for choosing our school and supporting evidence (e.g. copies of Baptismal Certificates)
