We are delighted that you are considering St Mary’s for your child.  The process for admission into Year 7 in September 2024 begins in September 2023 and is via the local authority. Details of their processes can be found at https://www.leeds.gov.uk/schools-and-education/school-admissions 

Please navigate the documents below regarding Year 7 entry 2024 for St Mary’s, including details of our Autumn Open Event on 30 September 2023.


Application Process and Timescales

To apply for a place in Year 7 for September 2024 in the normal admission round, a standard application form known as the Common Preference Form (CPF) must be completed, and returned to the relevant Local Authority by 31 October 2023. Failure to provide a CPF would mean that an application is not valid.

If parents feel that they should be in a specific category ie Baptised Catholic, then they are required to complete a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) and provide the required evidence. The SIF is available in the documentation below. If you require a paper copy, please contact the school. The SIF should be submitted by 31 October 2023 to Mrs L Leversha, Admissions Officer, St. Mary’s Catholic Voluntary Academy, Bradford Road, Menston, LS29 6AE or on l.leversha@stmarysmenston.org Failure to provide a SIF may affect the category your application is placed in. Please note that it is the responsibility of the parent/carer to complete all forms and supply evidence – reminders will not be sent.

Parents/carers will be advised of the outcome of their application on 1 March 2024 by the Local Authority. Unsuccessful applicants will be given reasons related to the over-subscription criteria listed in the Admissions Policy and advised of their right of appeal. Details of the appeals process can be found below.
