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 admissions form. 

 

  • For parents seeking admission for Reception classes in September 2023 please click here
  • 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 for all applicants 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 to Reception classes in September 2023, please use the 2023-24 SIF. 
  • For in-year applicants, please use the 2022-23 SIF. 
  • Please return your completed SIF directly to the school.  

 

Finally, you will receive an outcome to your application.

  • Applicants for Reception classes in September 2023 will receive an outcome to their application on the National Offer Day - 16th April 2023
  • Applicants for in-year admission should anticipate an outcome no later than 15 school days after Surrey Admissions have processed your application.    

 

If you have any questions at all about admissions, please don't hesitate to email us - we're always very happy to help: info@stjosephsguildford.com

Appeals must be made in writing and must set out the reasons on which the appeal is made. Appeals should be made using Surrey’s online appeals form. Appeals should be lodged no later than 20 school days after the National Offer Day for primary schools (16 April).

Parents/carers have the right to make oral representations to the Appeal Panel.


Late application appeals will be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged.
In-year applications will be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged.
