Admissions & Prospectus
Admissions into Year 9
Allocation of Students for Y9, September 2021
On 1st March 2021, Y9 students are allocated places to high schools and secondary schools. If your child has not received a place to St Augustine's Catholic High School via the normal application process and you wish to pursue this further, please complete the form via the LINK. PLEASE DO NOT COME INTO SCHOOL - DUE TO THE ONGOING CORONAVIRUS, WE ARE NOT PERMITTED TO HAVE PARENTS AT RECEPTION.
Being part of an Academy, the school manages its own admissions whilst abiding by the School Admissions and corresponding School Admissions Code, 2014. This ensures that the system is fair and transparent to all. The school is over-subscribed at entry into Year 9 and we receive a considerable number of applications for students to join mid academic year.
In September, our pastoral team visit local middle schools in Redditch to talk to the Year 8 students about moving up to High School. In October, we hold an Open Evening to prospective children and their parents to visit the school, talk to teachers and get a feel of what we have to offer.
In the normal round of admissions, parents/carers apply for a school place via Worcestershire Children First website by 31st October. The Local Authority will then write to families during the first week of March to advise on the school that their child has been allocated.
In July, all students who have been offered a place at St Augustine's will be invited with their parents/carers to a Transition Evening, when they may have another walk around the school, talk to teachers about core and option subjects, test out food in the canteen, have a look at the school uniform and generally have a relaxed tour around the site so that it starts to become familiar. Later on before the end of term, students will spend two consecutive days at school meeting their Form Tutor, having lessons and making friends so that the start of school in September becomes a familiar and enjoyable experience.
