Each year there are 60 places available in our Reception year group. In the academic year 2021-22 all 60 places were filled.


Buckinghamshire Council manage our admissions and places at the school can only be obtained through the Admissions Department.




Buckinghamshire Council has agreed that the admissions policy below should be used for those children due for admission to primary schools at the age of 5 or 7.


When a primary school is over-subscribed, i.e. more children wish to attend that school than there are vacant places, the criteria listed in the admissions policy are used to allocate places up to the Intended Admission Number.


If you would like your child to attend St Mary’s, please follow the links below for more information.
