In-Year Applications

If you wish to transfer your child to St. Bede’s or apply for a place in-year (including current Reception 2016-17), please contact Redbridge Admissions team (we are a Redbridge School) for further information. 

As St. Bede's is a Voluntary Aided Catholic school, the Governors require an In-Year Application Form. The Application Form is available from the school office and once completed should be returned to the school.  In addition to this, if you are a Catholic applicant, please make an appointment to meet your Parish Priest to complete a Certificate of Catholic Practice. Your Parish Priest will have copies of this available. Please return your completed application form to the school along with the child’s baptismal (if applicable). The Certificate of Catholic Practice will be sent directly to the school by your Parish Priest.  Please ensure you also bring a full photocopied set of supporting paperwork which will be kept with your application form for review by the Admissions Committee.

If you are another faith applicant (this includes other Christian faiths), the relevant form can be obtained from the school office or you can download this document by clicking here. Please ensure your Faith Leader stamps the form with the official stamp of your place of worship.
