Schools across the Archdiocese have adopted a common admissions policy which includes a consistent set of oversubscription criteria.  For reference these are set out below but, if you are considering applying for a place at a Catholic school for your child it is important that you visit the website of the school or schools in question to read the school-specific policy in full, as this will set out important additional detail such as the relevant designated parish(es) and, for high schools, the feeder primary schools.

For Catholic schools under trusteeship other than that of the Archdiocese, admissions arrangements may be different.

Websites for each of our schools can be found at the ‘school directory’ tab on this website or by clicking on the following link: http://www.liverpoolcatholic.org.uk/schools/School-Directory
