The Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Multi-Academy Trust is the admission authority for all the schools within the Trust and is responsible for determining the admissions policy. On behalf of the Trust, the admissions are coordinated by the relevant Local Authority. All decisions relating to admission applications will be taken by the school’s Local Governing Body.

Hard copies of policies can be obtained from the school office – a charge will apply to cover administration costs.

In-Year Admissions

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 Application Form  – Admissions In Year Application Form OLoL CMAT Sept 2023

If applying for a place on faith grounds you will also need to complete a Supplementary Information Form – Supplementary Information Form 2023 2024 Our Lady Of Lourdes CMAT

Where there are places available but more applications than places, the published oversubscription criteria, as set out in the admission arrangements for 2023-2024 will be applied. Secondary Schools Admissions Arrangements OLOL CMAT 2023-2024

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.

You will be advised of the outcome of your application in writing as soon as possible.  Applicants must be informed of the outcome of their application within 15 school days of receipt, but the aim is to notify applicants of the outcome of their application within 10 school days of receipt.

You have the right to appeal to an independent appeal panel if your application is unsuccessful.

If you have any questions in relation to in-year admissions please contact Mrs Jane Ellis-Laycock

You may also wish to discuss in-year applications with the local authority Nottinghamshire County Council Admissions.

Parents whose children have not been offered their preferred school in the normal admissions round will be added to their preferred school’s (1st Choice) Waiting List.

Waiting Lists for admission for year 7 to year 11 will be maintained until the end of the academic year applied for, and the child’s name will remain on the Waiting List until that time, or until the parents request the school to remove the child’s name from the list.

Waiting Lists for admission for year 12 and year 13 will remain open until the end of the autumn term of the year applied for.

Parents must make a further application for a school place in respect of a later academic year and if a place is not available, the child’s name can be added to the Waiting List.

Waiting Lists are ranked in the same order as the oversubscription criteria (please see the Admissions Policy).

Your child’s position on the Waiting List may change. This means that a child’s Waiting List position during the year could go up or down.

Any late applications will be added to the Waiting List in accordance with the oversubscription criteria.

Inclusion on a school’s Waiting List does not mean that a place will eventually become available.
