Admissions meeting


We are an 11-18 mixed, converter academy, serving the Catholic population within St. Oswin’s deanery. There are also seven Catholic primary schools within the deanery.

The Governors took up the opportunity to convert to Academy status in December 2011.

The wide catchment area provides us with a well-balanced, genuinely comprehensive intake, which we believe to be one of our many strengths. The school has capacity for 1700 students which includes up to 350 in the Sixth Form.

Governors admit up to 270 students in Year 7 each year, and the “staying-on” rate into our Sixth Form is consistently around 65%. The Sixth Form also admits a number of students from other schools each year
