Admission to St Paul's 

Please follow the link for the Tameside online application form

For a place in Nursery please contact the school office for application details.

As St Paul's is a voluntary aided school we do ask for additional information to support your application including birth certificate and baptismal certificates as well as proof of address.

In-Year Applications

An application can be made for a place for a child at any time outside the admission round and the child will be admitted where there are available places. An application should be made to the school by completing the in-year admissions application form and returning it to 

Where there are places available but more applications than places, the published oversubscription criteria for 2023/2024, as set below will be applied.

2. Catholic children who are resident in the parish of St Paul’s, Hyde. 

3. Other Catholic children.

Parents are advised to read the admission arrangements carefully before making their application.  If there are no places available, the child will be added to the waiting list. Please see the admission arrangements for more details.  You will be advised of the outcome of your application in writing as soon as possible.  Applicants must be informed of the outcome of their application within 15 school days of receipt, but the aim is to notify applicants of the outcome of their application within 10 school days of receipt.  You have the right to appeal to an independent appeal panel if your application is unsuccessful.  Admission appeals are managed by Tameside LA and further information can be found here
