PLEASE NOTE: Our Application to Vary our 2021/22 Admission arrangements has been approved by the Regional Schools Commissioner.


Due to the temporary closure of Churches and other places of worship during the Covid19 Lockdown, (which has impacted on our normal process for verifying church attendance/faith commitment as specified in our admission arrangements), the SNMAT Trust (as our admissions authority) has applied for a variation to our 2021/22 admission arrangements.   We have received confirmation that the proposed variation has been approved by the Regional School Commissioner.  Please see below our revised 2021-22 admission arrangements and Supplementary Information Form.

Please contact the SNMAT admissions officer - alison.jacobson@southwell.anglican.org if you need to discuss this matter further
