Appointment with the parish priest
Parents who are considering applying for a secondary school should make an appointment to discuss the matter with our parish priest as early as possible.

Secondary schools
There are many secondary schools in our local area.

Details of all Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Southwark can be found on the diocesan website
for the Commission for Schools and Colleges at

The Catholic schools in the area are regularly visited by government (Ofsted) inspectors and are also inspected by the Archdiocese of Southwark Commission for Schools and Colleges. For recent Ofsted results see

For details of secondary school admission policies and procedures you should contact your local borough in the first instance, which is usually Lambeth for those attending Mass at St Simon + St Jude, and then speak to the schools you are interested in to find out more.

Unfortunately many secondary schools in our area are oversubscribed so it is important to check the admissions criteria and the availability of places in each school carefully before you apply for a place for your child. You should also make an appointment with your parish priest, as explained above.
