Applying to St Michael’s College for Year 7 entry September 2024

You will hear from your local authority which school your child has been given on 1st March 2024. If your child was successful in gaining a place at St Michael’s Catholic College then we will write to you asking you to accept the place.


If you are not successful with your application to St Michael’s then you can appeal.  Please fill in the form at the link below to let us know you want to appeal and you will be sent a letter explaining why your child did not get a place and how to appeal.

A timetable will be posted with further details shortly but it is likely that the appeals will be heard in June.

Guidance – If you need to put in a late application then you need to get in touch with your local authority but you will also need to fill in our forms as below:

Please follow the steps below to apply to St Michael’s Catholic College:

  • Fill in the Local Authority Online Form for e-admissions (CAF Form) remembering to list St Michael’s as one of your preferences.
