The governing body is the admissions authority and has responsibility for admissions to St Alban's, including setting the priority of admissions when the school is oversubscribed. The Local Authority undertakes the co-ordination of admission arrangements during the normal admission round. The governing body has set its admission number at 60 pupils to be admitted to the Reception Year in the school year which begins in September. 

Please see relevant Admission Policies if you are applying for admission to our next Reception Class or making an in year application for the current year.
