Our Lady of the Angels Infant School and St Joseph's Junior School have amalgamated and have now become one school - Our Lady and St Joseph Catholic Academy. The following Admissions Policy is the relevant one to use for 2018/2019 regardless of which year group you are applying for. 

Due to the amalgamation of Our Lady of the Angels Catholic Infant School and St Joseph's Catholic Junior School the Board of Directors of the Holy Spirit Multi Academy Company propose to consult on the admission arrangements for 2019/2020 for the newly merged Our Lady & St Joseph Catholic Academy.

We attach the proposed Admission's Policy for 2019/2020 which notes the change of school name to Our Lady & St Joseph Catholic Academy and that the Published Admission Number to reception will be 70 pupils. Additionally, the waiting list retention date has been changed to the end of the summer term 2020. These are the only changes to the existing admission arrangements.

You are invited to consider our proposal and we welcome any feedback with regards to the changes that the Board of Directors wishes to make by the 24th November 2017. Please contact Deborah Elkin, Clerk to the Local Academy Committee, on admin3584@welearn365.com or by letter to the school address.
