If you're considering admission to St Joseph's, you might like to begin by reading our Headteacher's Letter to prospective parents:

Please be aware that admission to St Joseph's Nursery is separate to the main school.  You will need to follow the procedure set out on the Nursery Admissions page:

When you're ready to apply for school admission, there are two simple stages to the process.


  • Firstly, you will need to complete Surrey's online admission form.  For parents seeking admission for Reception classes in September 2021 please click here (applications open from 2nd November 2020). For those seeking in-year admission as they move from one school to another, please click here.


  • Secondly, St Joseph's has a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) which we ask parents to complete.  This form is important because it allows us to rank applicants fairly according to our published criteria as a Catholic School.  You can find our Admissions Policies and SIFs below.  For parents seeking admission in September 2021, please use the 2021-22 SIF.  For in-year applicants, please use the 2020-21 SIF.  Please return your completed SIF directly to the school.  


If you have any questions at all about admissions, please don't hesistate to email us - we're always very happy to help:
