In Year Admissions

Welcome to St Mary’s


If your child already has a place in a Wandsworth school but you want him/her to transfer to a different school in Wandsworth, you should discuss this with the Headteacher of their current school before making an application.

If a change of school is necessary, you should first find out if there are places available at other local schools by contacting the schools or the Council’s Pupil Services team. You will need to obtain an ‘In-Year’ transfer application form from your child’s current school. The form has a section which must be completed by the school.

To obtain an ‘In-Year’ transfer form please contact Shirley at: [email protected]


Parents will be notified of the outcome of their application, once completed application has been received by the school and processed following the Admission Policy. Once we can offer you the place, you can accept the offer, if you chose to decline the place, you can ask to remain on the waiting list for one academic year (although we cannot guarantee that another space will become available).



I didn’t get a place, how can I appeal?

If your child is refused a place at a school, you can appeal against the decision. We subscribe to Wandsworth Borough Council’s admissions appeals service, which manages appeals on our behalf.
Please visit Wandsworth Borough Council’s school admission appeals webpage for the contact details of the appeals service, guidance notes, the appeal form and the current appeals timetable. You can also refer to information about appeals published by the government

As of the 5th June 2022, Pentecost, the Bishops of England and Wales reinstated the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days.
