In Year applications from FS1 up to Year 6

An application can be made for a place for a child at any time outside the admission round and the child will be admitted where there are available places.

An application should be made to the school by completing the in-year admissions application form which is available from the link below.

In-Year Application Form 2021-22.pdf

A hard copy of the application form can be obtained by contacting the school office on 01782 307530, email address

Completed application forms must be returned to St Thomas Aquinas Catholic Primary School, North Street, Stoke-on-Trent, ST4 7DG.

Where there are places available but more applications than places, the published oversubscription criteria, as set out in the admission arrangements for 2021/2022, will be applied. The full admission arrangements can be accessed from the policies section found under the Information Tab for our admission policies or by contacting the school office on 01782 307530 to request a hard copy. Parents are advised to read the admission arrangements carefully before making their application.

If there are no places available, the child will be added to the waiting list. Please see the admission arrangements for more details regarding waiting lists.

You will be advised of the outcome of your application in writing as soon as possible. You have the right to appeal to an independent appeal panel if your application is unsuccessful (excluding nursery FS1 as it is a non statutory process).

If you have any questions in relation to in-year admissions please contact the school office on 01782 307530. You may also wish to discuss in-year applications with the local authority on 01782 237856.
