National Offer Day

The governing body of St Richard Reynolds College is the admissions authority and holds and manages its own waiting lists separate from the local authority. Your child will be automatically added to our waiting list if you were not offered a place at a higher preference school.
The College receives a large number of queries after offers have been sent out. If you have a question about admissions, please email the admissions department at email@example.com and the admissions officer will respond as soon as possible.
If you wish your child to be placed on the Reception 2019 waiting list please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following details:
1) Child's Name
2) Child's DOB
3) Child's Address
4) Contact number
5) Confirmation if originally applied.
Families have two weeks from National Offer Day to confirm whether they will be accepting initial offers made to their Local Authority. Should places become available AFTER this time, they will be allocated and offered according to the published over-subscription criteria.
Please note: The College Office staff does not have visibility of the waiting list and are unable to give personal information regarding positions on the waiting list.
The school is a voluntary aided co-educational primary school within the trusteeship of the Diocese of Westminster. It provides 210 places for pupils between the ages of 4 and 11.
