First Admissions Arrangements

Holy Cross Primary Catholic Voluntary Academy is a Catholic academy where the Academy Trust is the admissions authority. If you would like to make an application for a place at our school based on the faith criteria you can collect a school supplementry form from the school office or download it from our website and return it to the school office together with your child's birth certificate and certificate of baptism (if applicable).

Nottinghamshire County Council have sent information out regarding school first admission arrangements, please contact them if you have not received this.  You can apply school placements online at If you have any queries regarding the application process please contact the NCC Admissions Team on 01158 041237.


  • Under the co-ordinated scheme for admissions it is important to be aware that should the school of preference for your child be our school then it would be wise to put us as your first choice on the application.
  • Under the co-ordinated admission scheme this will not prejudice getting a place at any other school, in the event that our school is oversubscribed.
  • However, should you put another school as a higher priority than ours and you are allocated a place at that school, then that will be the school your child will automatically be offered a place at, irrespective of whether your application to our school was successful or not.
