School Admissions; Faith Criteria

We are aware that choosing a new school can be stressful, and that some school admissions have a faith criteria. Read on to find out more information.

Over the years, we have been delighted to support a number of our children who have applied to a Church School, of which Altrincham Primary School is one of them.

Here, at St George’s we also want to be seen to be fair and just for all in the way it is done.

With this in mind, we have put together a leaflet which outlines the criteria and the procedures for applying for a place in the school.

If you are thinking of applying for a place for your child at Altrincham Primary School, or any other school where there is faith criteria, please pick up a form from the table in the South Porch, keep the record of your church attendance and talk to Reverend Claire Corley about it in due course.

Please do be aware that some church schools, particularly those oversubscribed, do ask for verification of your child’s regular attendance over the previous TWO YEARS, and many also ask us to indicate the extent to which the family is at the ‘heart’ of the congregation or simply ‘attends’ or is ‘attached’.

We’re aware that applying for school places can be very daunting – so if it helps, please do get in touch if it would help to talk about it further.
