Admissions Information

Holy  Family  Catholic  High  School  was  founded  by  the  Catholic  Church  to  provide  education  for children of Catholic families. The school is run by its governing body as part of the Catholic Church in accordance with its Trust Deed and instrument of government, and seeks at all times to be a witness to Jesus Christ.  If the number of preferences received is less than the admission number then all preferences will be met. However, when there are more applications than places available, priority will always be given to Catholic applicants in accordance with the oversubscription criteria listed below. By applying to this school parents, or carers, are declaring their support for the aims and ethos of the school. The governing body has responsibility for admissions to the school and intends to admit 90 pupils to Year 7 in the school year which begins in September 2018.
