Admissions explained

6. Secondary Catholic school policies

The Governing Bodies of all three Catholic High schools in Stockport have developed an admissions policy in consultation with the Local Authority, parents and governing bodies of other schools.

The categories listed below are used for the allocation of places. In order to fit into a category your child must meet all of the conditions listed; and will only fit into one category. A nominated area may be a parish or part of a parish.

Catholic looked after children and previously looked after children will be admitted in advance of the outlined criteria of category A. Non-Catholic looked after children and previously looked after children will be admitted in advance of the outlined criteria of category H.
