Determination of Admission Arrangements 2023/24
In line with the School Admissions Code, Cathedral Schools Trust (CST) has determined (agreed) the admission arrangements for all schools within the trust including St Katherine's School. These arrangements are for children who will be admitted to the school at the normal point of entry for September 2023.
Variations to our Admission Arrangements effective from 1st September 2021
In line with the introduction of the new School Admissions Code in September 2021, schools which are their own Admission Authorities have been required to put specific variations in place to previously determined admission arrangements for 2021/22 and 2022/23.
These relate to the definition of looked after and previously looked after children (children in care/previously in care whether in England or elsewhere), the definition of 'Home', in year admission procedures and how distance is measured.
These variations were determined for use by Cathedral Schools Trust (CST) who is the admission authority. You can view the Varied Admission Arrangements for 2021/22 and 2022/23 by following the links below:
