Admission to St Patrick’s School

We will normally accept all baptised Roman Catholic children living within the catchment area of St. Patrick’s Parish into school. Infant class size will be no more than 30, and the school’s standard number is 45.

The catchment area matches the Parish of St Patrick’s, which has Millbank lane, part of Thornaby Road and Teesdale Park as it’s boundaries.

To see our current Admissions Policy please refer to the school office or check the school website:  https://stpatrickscp.npcat.org.uk/admission-policies/

Full details of the Admission Policy is available from our website. If a child is refused admission, parents are permitted to appeal against the decision. Details are included in the Admissions Policy.

Children transfer from Nursery to Main School in the September or January before the child’s 5th birthday.

Nursery Admission

St Patrick’s Nursery admits children shortly after their 3rd birthday, whenever possible. Baptised Catholic children will always be given first priority for admittance, but non-Catholic children, or children of parents who wish their child to gain from our Nursery ethos, may be considered, in the same order as our School Admission Policy. Admission to Nursery does not automatically guarantee admission into School.

We have an excellent Nursery team, who liaise closely with school staff to give the children the best possible preparation for entering primary school.
