Admissions and Appeals

The Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Multi-Academy Trust is the admission authority for all the schools within the Trust and is responsible for determining the admissions policy. On behalf of the Trust, the admissions are coordinated by the relevant Local Authority. All decisions relating to admission applications will be taken by the school’s Local Governing Body.


If you are wishing to apply for a place at St. Margaret Clitherow Academy for your child, please read the admissions policy below.  All applications are coordinated through Nottingham City Council. Please ring the Nottingham City Council admissions team on 0115 8415568 to find out more about the admissions process.

Please ensure that you follow BOTH steps below, this will avoid any delay in your application for a place at St. Margaret Clitherow Academy..

STEP 1: If you are applying for a place and your child is a baptised Catholic, you MUST complete the supplementary form provided by the school.  You must also provide a copy of your child's baptism certificate and return all documents to the school office before the closing date (15th January 2021). Without this additional information, we cannot rank your child as a Catholic.

STEP 2: Complete the registration and admissions form on the Nottingham City Council website which can be found here.

Waiting Lists

Parents whose children have not been offered a place in the normal admissions round will be added to the school's waiting list unless they have been offered a place at a higher preference school. The waiting list will remain open until the end of the academic application year. If a parent wishes their child to remain on the waiting list, they must reapply each academic year. The local authority manages the waiting list for St Margaret Clitherow Catholic Voluntary Academy.
