Covid statement

YEAR 7 - ENTRY 2021-2022

The application process begins on 1 September 2020 and ends on 31 October 2020.

If you are seeking a place at St Bede's, please read the Admissions policy 2021-22 as well as the following:

1) APPLY TO SURREY COUNTY COUNCIL FOR A PLACE

  • To find out all the information you need go to the Surrey County Council website www.surreycc.gov.uk/admissions. This website lists all the county council secondary schools in Surrey together with an electronic copy of the secondary schools admissions booklet. This site allows you to express your choice of schools and to apply for a place online. Online is Surrey’s preferred method of application.
  • If you prefer to apply on paper please call 0300 200 1015 for an application form.

2) PROVIDE ST BEDE’S WITH INFORMATION

  • You must complete St Bede’s ‘Supplementary Information for Admissions form 2021' as well if you wish to apply for a place under criteria A, B, or C (iii, iv) and return it directly to us (not to Surrey or the primary school) as soon as possible. We cannot set a priority for your application without this form and it is unlikely that you would be offered a place unless we have received it. The original form must be sent to us. We will not accept emails and this form cannot be completed online.
  • If you are applying for a foundation place or as a member of a non-Christian faith community, please make sure that the person you have named as your referee is expecting to receive our request. We will contact clergy/faith leaders for references.

If you need any help or advice, please contact our admissions team on 01737 214071 or email the admissions team (choose 'Admissions' from the drop down).


IN-YEAR APPLICATION YEAR 7 TO 11

In order to apply for an In-Year place you need to complete the St Bede's In-Year application form and the Surrey County Council SMA Form obtainable either from the school (In-Year SMA form) or Surrey County Council.

Please send both forms to St Bede’s. Before completing this form, please read the admissions policy for 2020-21 entry. Priority for places will be allocated exactly as described there.

If you need any help or advice, please contact our admissions team on 01737 214071 or email the admissions team (choose 'Admissions' from the drop down).
