School Admissions

The school welcomes applications from parents and carers who wish their son or daughter to attend St Joan of Arc Catholic School.

The students of St Joan of Arc Catholic School are our greatest ambassadors and we are very proud of them. We therefore encourage all prospective students and their families to visit us so that you can meet our students and see this for yourself.

The school holds an open evening and open morning each October for Year 7 entry and in November for our Sixth Form. These events provide prospective students and their parents the opportunity to find out more about the school.

We invite all new students to an induction day in July in preparation for their admission in September. We also hold an induction evening for the new Year 7 parents where you will meet your child’s form tutor and ask any questions you may still have about St Joan’s.

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Westminster has also produced guidance on applying for a Diocesan Catholic School. See the document 'Choosing a Catholic school'.
