Secondary School Applications

Autumn is the season for school applications. If your chosen school requires countersignature from a priest, please fill in your part of the form, then present it to the parish office together with a photocopy (not the original) of the baptismal certificate. You must be a registered member of our parish, so if you have not filled in a parish registration form, please do so now and submit it with the application form or beforehand.

If you are applying to St Bede's please email the parish office to let them know you are doing so; it is also important to be registered with the parish for this.

Primary School Applications

If you are applying to St Francis' School, please present your whole application to the school who will issue you with a receipt. The clergy approval will be arranged with the school directly.

Application to other primary schools should please follow the same principles as secondary schools above.

Please make sure you are on the parish mailing list by emailing info@sacred-heart.co.uk. and all updates will be sent to you as soon as we know them. You will also receive the newsletter each Friday.

Finding out about the Catholic Faith

Each Wednesday evening 8.00–8.45 there is an online group meeting to which all are welcome. If you are thinking of becoming a Catholic, or are already one and simply would like to know more, then this is the group for you. Please email roypeacheyuk@gmail.com for the log-in information.

For those who would like to go deeper, and also consider the Sunday readings, there is also the Journey of Faith group, details on the left.

The Bishops' Conference of England and Wales' statement on safeguarding was issued on Friday 20 November 2020. You can read it here.
