We do not hold an open morning - we believe that you should see a normal working school day and as such we welcome prospective parents to view the school at anytime - please contact the school office to make an appointment and come and see what a nurturing and vibrant learning environment we provide for our children everyday!
Children in England are now entitled to start school in the September following their fourth birthday and must start their education by the beginning of the term after their fifth birthday.
- As a Voluntary Controlled School criteria for admissions and if necessary Appeals for Reception places are set and strictly followed by Shropshire County Council - Admissions Criteria.
Here at St. Mary's we appreciate the importance of making the right school choice for you and your child. We welcome visits to the school and are happy to answer any questions. We also have extensive transition arrangements to ensure that your child settles into school life and is happy in their learning.
All applications for Reception places are handled by Shropshire LA - so please make sure your form is handed in by the annual deadline!
Please note: Even if you are the parent of an older child who already attends the school, you still need to complete a Shropshire Education Services admission application form for a younger sibling nearing school age.
Parents who are considering sending their child to St Mary’s are encouraged to visit the school. Please contact the school office - we would be delighted to show you around!
