Leeds Admissions

If parents/carers feel that their child should be in a specific category i.e. Baptised Catholic, then they are required to complete a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) and provide the required evidence. The Supplementary Information Form can be downloaded below and must be submitted by 15 January to the school, St. Mary’s Catholic Voluntary Academy, Broadgate Lane, Horsforth, Leeds, LS18 5AB. Therefore, failure to provide a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) could affect the category your application is placed in.

Please note that it is the responsibility of the parent/carer to complete all forms and supply evidence – reminders will not be sent.
Parents or carers will be advised by Leeds City Council of the outcome of their applications on 16 April. Unsuccessful applicants will be given reasons related to the over-subscription criteria listed above and advised of their right of appeal to an independent appeal panel.
