The Governing Body, acting through its Education Committee, will admit pupils each year at age 11, without regard to aptitude or ability. Coloma would welcome applications from throughout the community, regardless of faith or background; however, Applicants need to be aware that Coloma is a heavily over-subscribed school and that Catholic Candidates are prioritised above non-Catholic Candidates when there is over-subscription. The school received 425 applications from Catholic Candidates for entry in September 2018 which meant that offers of places in Year 7 were made to Catholic Candidates only. For entry in September 2019 the school received 377 applications from Catholic Candidates which meant that offers of places in Year 7 were made to Catholic Candidates only.

Those wishing to apply for a place at the school need to review the documents below:

This document sets out the policy which will be followed for all admission applications to the school for pupil entry in the 2020/21 academic year. 

  • Information requested on this form is only used if the school is over-subscribed and there is a need to apply the over-subscription criteria in order to rank the applications according to the degree of commitment to Catholic religious practice. That ranking will determine the order in which offers of places are made.

    Please note that the deadline for completing the SIF is Thursday 31st October 2019.
