Pupil Admissions

September Admissions

St Mary's has places for 30 children in each class in our main school. You do not have to be a Catholic to get a place at St Mary's. If you are interested in applying for a place, please contact the school office on 01706 873123 or email bursar@st-marys-bacup.lancs.sch.uk to arrange a visit and receive an application pack. Our admissions policy is attached in the Information - School Policies section of the website. For full details of admissions arrangements for Lancashire schools, visit www.lancashire.gov.uk and search "school admissions".

Nursery Admissions

Children are usually admitted into our nursery the half-term after they turn three. There are five admissions during the year: September, November, January, February and April. Most parents contact the school when their child turns two to register their child for a place. If you wish to register your child or already have a child of nursery age and wish to place them in our nursery, then please contact the school office on 01706 873123 or email bursar@st-marys-bacup.lancs.sch.uk.

In-Year Admissions

Admission to St Mary's usually takes place at the start of a given term, if your child is already in another local school. If you have moved into the area, and your child can no longer attend their previous school because of distance, admission will be completed as quickly as possible. If you wish your child to start at St Mary's then please contact the school office on 01706 873123 to arrange a meeting with the Headteacher.
