School Admission Policy

As St Margaret Clitherow's is now part of the St Oswald's Academy Trust our admission policy has changed. However the policy still remains firmly based in the Gospel values that make our school what it is today...

St Margaret Clitherow’s is a Catholic School in the Diocese of Middlesbrough. All those involved in our school – parents, pupils, staff and governors – share a common purpose and common Gospel values. This means they are committed to promoting:


At St Margaret Clitherow’s, we believe that with

Jesus at the heart of everything we do, we will 

enable every member of our school family to :


   educate children and provide opportunities for all members of our school family to achieve to the best of their ability; aspire to be the best that they can and belong to a school family who love and protect each other, and  praise God by following in the footsteps of  Jesus.

The Governors have the duty to ensure that the school is conducted in accordance with the values reflected in the school’s mission statement. They are also legally responsible for ensuring that the distinctive nature of the Catholic education is preserved and developed.


Admissions to the Nursery at St Margaret Clitherow’s does not guarantee admission to St Margaret Clitherow’s Primary School. It is part of the St Oswald's Academy Trust and therefore the governing body is responsible for admissions.
