Certificate of Catholic Practice

To meet the criteria of attending a Catholic school you don’t necessarily have to be Catholic. As is the case with most schools, who gets in is highly dependent on how popular a school is with parents. Catholic schools will always prioritise Catholic pupils in their admissions, and if they have space for more, all are welcome to apply.  All faiths are welcome, however, you are expected to follow the Catholic ethos of St Aidan's.

In 90% cases, Catholic schools can cater for the local Catholic demand. In these instances, parents only need to provide a Baptism certificate as proof of Catholicism. In the handful of cases where Catholic schools are oversubscribed with Catholics, Catholic practise is taken into account. Information on the Certificate of Catholic practice can be downloaded below.
