To apply for a place outside of the Reception Admissions you will need to complete an In Year Application Form. This can be downloaded here. This form will need to be completed and returned directly to the school office at St Botolph’s, together with a St Botolph’s Supplementary Form (which can be downloaded from the link below).

To check to see if you live within the parish of St Botolph’s and St Mark’s, please visit A Church Near You and enter your postcode.

Please note, if your child is offered a place at St Botolph’s, you will be required to provide your child’s birth certificate and proof of address.

The best way to decide upon the right school for a child, is to visit it! Parents and carers of prospective pupils are very welcome to visit the school at any time by appointment. Please contact the school office to make an appointment.
