Admission Consultations

Admissions consultation regarding Policies for Admission for September 2018

As the admissions’ Authority for St Bede’s and St Joseph’s Catholic College, Bradford the Governors wish to consult in accordance with the Admissions Code on the following changes to the boundaries covered in the admissions policies for St Mary’s and St Peter’s Catholic primary school and St Bede’s and St Joseph’s Catholic College.

The Bishop has authorised under Canon law the change to parish boundaries as given in the description below:

“After consulting the Council of Priests on 13th July 2016, I wish to inform you that the boundaries of the Parish of St Joseph, Pudsey and the Parish of St Mary, Bradford have been redrawn with the territory bounded by Bradford Road, Daleside Road, Galloway Lane and the Calder Valley Railway Line being ceded to the Parish of St Joseph, Pudsey”.   

Bishop Marcus Stock

This decreases the catchment area for St Mary’s and St Peter’s Catholic primary school and St Bede’s and St Joseph’s Catholic College.

The purpose of the school is to provide a Catholic education to the families within the defined areas as outlined in our existing policy and we will continue to do so.

The attached proposed Admissions Policy for St Bede’s and St Joseph’s Catholic College is given for your information.
