 10th December 2020                                                                                                         


In accordance with the School Admissions Code 2014, we are consulting on the proposed Admission Arrangements for St John’s Cathedral Catholic Primary School for entry in September 2022.


The proposed changes from September 2021 are:


  • The removal of categories 1, 2, 3 and 4 (Corpus Christi Catholic Primary School, St John’s Cathedral Catholic Primary School and St Swithun’s Catholic Primary School) which relate to how frequently children who are baptised Catholic attend Sunday Mass.


  • The addition of a new category – Members of an Eastern Christian Church (all schools).


A copy of the proposed admission arrangements can be found on our school website under admissions.


The consultation period will run until Friday 29th January 2020 (statutory six week period).  Responses can be sent for the attention of Mr Nicholas Speller, Chair of Governors by email to: (with the subject header Admissions Consultation) or by post to St John’s Cathedral Catholic Primary School, Cottage View, Portsmouth, PO1 1PX.

After the closing date, responses will be collated and presented to the Governing Bodies of the Catholic Primary Schools mentioned above.  Once determined the final admission arrangements will be placed on our websites by 28th February 2020.
