Admissions

We would be delighted if you choose to apply for your child to come to St. Hilda's.

We welcome applications from all children living locally. While we do encourage faith-based applications, as this is part of the ethos of the school, we also gladly welcome children of different faiths or no specific faith heritage.

Please feel free to read our policy, which is attached below and is kept up to date by the Governors on the policies reviewed by Governors page.

Primary application for September 2017 (children born between 1st September 2012 - 31st August 2013)

To apply for a primary place at St Hilda's, the Authority's common application form must be completed via the Trafford Council website and submitted by 15th January, 2017.

It is also likely to be helpful to complete the school's own supplementary admission form, which is attached below. 

Please note: parents, who have children at St. Hilda's Nursery, must still make this application. 

Places are usually allocated in April.

Nursery applications

There is no central application system for school nursery places in Trafford. Like other schools, St. Hilda's manages its own application system and uses the admission criteria outlined in the policy, which is attached below. Parents must complete the Nursery application also attached below.

We offer a choice of free part time places from 8.45am to 11.45am (mornings) or 12.30pm to 3.30pm (afternoons), as well as full time places (8.45am to 3.30pm). Packed lunches are required for full time children.

If you request a full time place there is currently an additional charge of £60 per week. From September 2017, if you are a working parent you may also be entitled to claim this for free. For up-to-date information, please visit Trafford's 30 hours free childcare page.

In year applications

If you want to transfer from your child's current school to St. Hilda's, in the first instance please contact us to see if there are any available places.

If there is availability, we recommend arranging a tour of the school with the Head Teacher. 

Once you have decided to take a place, you will be asked to complete a data collection form to register your child.
