St Anselm’s is a one-form entry Catholic Primary School with a pupil admission number of 30.

To make an application for a place at St Anselm’s you will need to complete TWO forms.


1. Reception Online Application Form (OLA)

Open Mornings and Tours of the School 

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no open mornings and tours of the school this year.


Instead, the school has produced a short video providing information about our school which is can be viewed in our Video Resource Centre. A separate video of the school site can also be seen by clicking on the relevant link.

In addition to this we will be holding a virtual coffee morning on Tuesday 8th December at 9.30am for prospective parents to meet Mrs White, the Headteacher and Mrs Beckley, the Deputy Headteacher and Early Years Leader. This will be a good opportunity for you to ask any questions about the school or the admissions process. If this is something that you would like to take part in, please register via the link below.
