Admission Arrangements

Standard Number for admission into the Reception Year of 30 children for each academic year has been established with the Secretary of State for Education.

Parents should complete their applications online via the Hampshire County Council website.  Parents should also complete the St Patrick’s Supplementary Information form which will be available in the September of the academic year prior to the required date of admission.

Parents who are applying for their child to attend St Patrick’s under faith criteria are reminded that the Supplementary Information Form should be completed and returned to the school before the closing date for admissions. Parents are welcome to contact Hampshire County Council for more information about admission arrangements at St Patrick’s on 0300 555 1377 or at
