Admissions Policy

St. Martin's is an inclusive school and we welcome pupils of all faiths and none. Our Catholic ethos underpins the life of the school and is the basis on which our community is built.

The Admissions Policy gives details of our current admission criteria.

To apply for a place at our school, please complete the Reading Borough online application form which can be found here and the supplementary form.  Hand the supplementary form into the school office along with your child's baptismal certificate (if available).  


Parents/carers will have the right of appeal to an Independent Appeal Panel if they are not offered a place at our school.

The Appeal Panel will be independent of the school and the Governing Body. The arrangements for appeals will be in line with the School Admission Appeals Code 2012 published by the DfE (Department for Education).

Parents wishing to appeal against an admission decision should apply to:

The Clerk to the Appeal Panel
Committee Services, Reading Borough Council
Civic Centre

Appeals for admissions in September must be submitted by RBC’s Schools deadline. Appeals will be heard during June/July. Appeals for in year admissions can be submitted at any time.
