Admissions Policy

The Holy Family Catholic Academy Trust is the Admissions Authority for St George’s Catholic Voluntary Academy whereas St John Fisher Catholic Voluntary Academy is its own Admissions Authority.

The Catholic Voluntary Academies listed above are under the Trusteeship of the Diocese of Nottingham and belong to the Nottingham Diocesan family of schools. They are founded by and are part of the Catholic Church and seek at all times to be a witness to Jesus Christ. Religious Education and worship are in accordance with the teachings and doctrines of the Catholic Church. This does not affect the right of parents or carers who are not of the faith of these schools to apply for and to be considered for places. We ask all parents or carers applying for a place to respect this ethos and its importance to the school community.

Our schools are principally provided to serve the Catholic communities of Derby. The Governors also welcome applications from all parents and carers, regardless of faith or background, who would like their children to be educated in a Christian environment.

The admissions authorities for the academies as set out above are responsible for determining the admissions policies. The admissions process is coordinated by Derby City Local Authority on behalf of the admissions authorities.

All decisions relating to admission applications will be taken by the Governing Body of the Academy applied for.
