September 2017 Year 7 Outcomes

Local authorites made offers to successful applicants on National Offer Day 1st March 2017 on behalf of our governing body. If you wish to join the waiting list for a place in Year 7 for the coming September, please follow the instructions below. If you wish to appeal against the decision not to offer your child a place, please see details of the appeals procedure below.

High School Waiting List 2017/18

As a Voluntary Aided school St Richard Reynolds College is it's own admissions authority and therefore holds and manages its own waiting lists separate from the local authority. 

Offers will be made as places become available. 
If you wish for your child to be placed on the Year 7 2017 waiting list please email with the following details:

1) Child's name
2) Child's date of birth
3) Child's address
4) Confirmation if you previously applied for a place

If you did not apply for a place, you should complete and return a supplementary information form which can be downloaded HERE

If your child is a baptised Catholic, you should also provide a Certificate of Catholic Practice if available, which can be downloaded from the Diocese of Westminster website HERE

Should places become available AFTER this time, they will be allocated and offered according to the published over-subscription criteria.

St Richard Reynolds Catholic High School Admissions 2018-19

Please Note:

The Governors’ published admissions policy for entry to the School in September 2017 was the subject of an objection to the Schools’ Adjudicator who has now issued a Determination dated 2 November (which is available on their website at  under Publications).  The legality of this Determination is now being challenged in the High Court. For the moment, applications should be made under the published policy; we will let you know through the website if the position changes. Whatever the outcome of the legal challenge, we welcome all applications and Catholic families should continue to obtain a Certificate of Catholic Practice from their priest, as required by the policy. We will update you once the Court has carried out a preliminary review of the case.

The school is a voluntary aided co-educational 11-18 school within the trusteeship of the Diocese of Westminster, it will eventually provide 1,050 places, including 750 places for children aged 11-16 and 300 sixth form places will be provided for young people aged 16-18. The admission number for Year 7 in the school is 150. 

The closing date for applications for places in September 2017 at St Richard Reynolds Catholic High School was 31st October 2017. Outcomes were advised on 1st March 2018. Children from all faiths and none are very welcome at the school but if the school is oversubscribed, priority is given to baptised Catholic children.

The full Admission arrangements for the high school and the Supplementary Information Form and blank Certificates of Catholic Practice may be downloaded by clicking the links below. If you do not have access to the internet and a printer, please contact the College Office.

NB You must complete and return a Common Application Form (CAF) to your home local authority. Richmond residents may apply online from 1st September 2017

NB The deadline for submitting your Common Application Form (CAF) for Year 7 to your home local authority admissions department is 31st October 2017. Applications received after this date will be considered only after the on time applications have been processed unless you have a compelling reason for missing the deadline. Supplementary Information Forms and Certificates of Catholic Practice (if applicable) should be returned to the College no later than the week beginning 31st October 2017.

Note: The governing body may only determine the admissions arrangements on a year by year basis but it is the expectation that up to ten pupils who are awarded and accept an Open place in St RIchard Reynolds Catholic Primary School will be given top priority after looked after children should they apply for a place in Year 7 at St Richard Reynolds Catholic High School when they reach Year 6 in St Richard Reynolds Catholic Primary School. This does not form part of our current admissions arrangements.
