Saint Mary's CatholicVoluntary Academy


Welcome toSaint Mary's CatholicVoluntary Academy


We appreciate that choosing a school for your child is an important decision. To help you to make an informed choice, we invite parents to visit the school for a tour of our facilities and to meet the staff. Appointments can be made through the school office. Following the allocation of places, parents and children will be invited to induction meetings and sessions during the summer term before entry. 
The Governing Body is the admissions authority and all decisions about admission are made by a committee of the Governing Body. The admissions process is co-ordinated by the Derbyshire Education Authority on behalf of the Governing Body. Our Published Admission Number (PAN) is 17, which is the net capacity figure for the school. Please note that any parent wishing their child to be considered for a place at the school must complete the common application form (PAF1) as well as the Diocesan supplementary information form.  

A copy of the supplementary form required  to allocate places can be found on the school website. If you make an online application this form is made available to users during the application process. A paper copy is also available from the school office. Supplementary forms must be returned to the school office by the admissions deadline along with any necessary evidence e.g. baptismal certificate. Original certificates will be photocopied and then returned.  
Attached to this webpage for your convenience, is the admissions policy, the supplementary form and a copy of our parish map. If you should have a query as to which parish you are located please contact the school office, we will be able to answer most queries. 
If you require further information or assistance with your application please contact the school office.
