St Joseph's Catholic Primary School is a voluntary-aided primary school. This means that we follow Lewisham's admissions arrangements but also apply our own criteria when it comes to oversubscription. Please see the section Admission Policies on the right for more information. 

Parents who wish to consider St Joseph's Catholic Primary School as their school for Reception (Aged 4 -5), must  complete an online Common Application Form which is available from the local authority website:

The governors also ask parents to complete a Supplementary Information Form, which should be endorsed by your parish priest, or minister, to verify mass attendance. If you do not attend church, you do not need to complete the priest or minister's section on the form, but you must still complete a Supplementary Form so that Governors can consider your application.  The school welcomes applications from families of all faiths, and families of no faith. 

The application process begins on 1st September and you must complete your application and submit all documents by 15th January 2021. You will be notified if the outcome, by the local authority, on 16th April 2021.

St Joseph's, is a one-form entry primary school and takes cohorts from Reception (aged 4 by the beginning of the school year) to Year 6 (aged 10 to 11).
