YEAR 7 - ENTRY 2022-2023
The application process will begin on 1 September 2021 and ends on 31 October 2021.
If you are seeking a place at St Bede's, please read the Admissions policy 2022-23 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 2022' 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 2021-22 entry. Priority for places will be allocated exactly as described there.
If you need any help, advice or a hard copy of the forms, please contact our admissions team on 01737 214071 or email the admissions team (choose 'Admissions' from the drop down).
We will process your application in line with admissions policy and aim to notify you of the outcome within 15 school days from the date the application documents have been received in full. Unsuccessful applicants have the right to appeal. For further details about in-year or immediate entry appeals see below.
Please note that some of these deadlines and the process for hearing appeals may change depending on the national situation as a result of COVID-19. You will be informed on a case by case basis.
In year or immediate entry appeals / School admission appeals timetable
In the first instance contact the Admissions Office either by telephone 01737 214071,
email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call in person to the school reception to request an appeal pack.
Appellants must set out their grounds of appeal in writing. The appeal will then be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged. Further details about the appeal process are included in the appeal pack.

Please note, appeals will not start being heard until after the relevant closing date has passed.
Appeals lodged after these dates will be heard within 40 school days of the appeal deadline or 30 school days of being lodged, whichever is the later date.
Appellants will be sent notification of their appeal hearing at least 10 clear school days in advance of the hearing.
Appellants will be sent a copy of the school's case seven clear working days in advance of the hearing.
If an appellant wishes to submit a further short document which was not included with their initial submission, they must make sure that it is received by the school five clear working days prior to the appeal hearing date. Any additional evidence or information received after this date might not be considered at the appeal hearing. The Appeal Panel must decide whether it should be considered taking into account its significance and the effect of a possible need to adjourn the hearing.
Consultation - Admission arrangements for 2023/24
Monday 11 October 2021
Despite St Bede’s expanding, there is still high demand and oversubscription and the number of places is limited. It is difficult for a prospective parent to gauge how many Anglican and Catholic places are available because both traditions are blocked together. If there were designated numbers for Anglican and Catholic children, parents could better understand their chances of getting a place at St Bede’s.
Free Churches are allocated a specific number of places. Therefore, it would be fair to allocate a specific number of Anglican and Catholic places. If Anglican places are unfilled, they would then become additional Catholic places and if Catholic places are unfilled, they would become additional Anglican places.
The Anglican and Catholic block of 269 places will be divided into 135 Anglican and 135 Catholic. Free Church places will increase from 49 to 50 places. The Open block will reduce from 12 to 10 places. St Bede’s PAN will remain at 330.
You will find our Admission Consultation documentation for review below.
If you wish to comment please email email@example.com for the attention of Mr A Powell by the closing date, Monday 22 November 2021.
