Consultation on Admission Arrangements 2024/25

In line with the School Admissions Code, Cathedral Schools Trust (CST), which is the admission authority, is consulting on the admission arrangements for the following schools within the Trust for children who will be admitted during the academic year 2024/25;

  • Headley Park Primary School
  • Hotwells Primary School
  • St Werburgh’s Primary School
  • Stoke Park Primary School
  • St Katherine’s School
  • Trinity Academy

The proposal is to include a children of staff criterion to the priority list for admissions for these schools. This is in line with other CST schools who already have a children of staff criterion. It was clear from responses to the consultation last year that the option for staff to be able to send their children to the school where they work was important for a range of reasons including making the logistical challenges of childcare more manageable and supporting their wellbeing. It was also clear that the staff criterion supports retention and helps to build the shared sense of community within each school.
