St Mary and All Saints is a Voluntary Aided Primary School, this means:
  • We have our own admissions policy and admissions criteria for Nursery and School Admissions (see the Admissions Policies available to download on this page)
  • Admissions decisions are made by the the Governing Board applying the relevant policy.
  • Applications to the Nursery and other classes are made directly to the school (using the application forms available to download on this page)
  • Applications to Reception are managed by Local Authority.

If you would like to apply for Nursery or an ‘in year admission’ to any classes other than reception in September.  Please apply via the school office using the ‘In Year Admissions Form’.

If you would like to apply for a Reception place starting in September, please apply directly to Reading Borough Council.

If you would like Church attendance to be considered as part of your application, please use the ‘Supplementary Application Form’.
