Priority Area

St. Peter’s is in the Catholic Parish of Leamington Spa.  Within this Parish, there are 4 Catholic Primary Schools; each with their own clearly defined ‘Priority area’ (also known as a ‘catchment area’).  If you live within the St. Peter’s Priority Area, your child will have an increased chance of being admitted to the school.

  • If you live within a school’s priority area you have more chance of your child being offered a place at that school.
  • Living within the priority area does not guarantee an offer of a place at that school as there may be more applicants living within the priority area than the number of places available.
  • Warwickshire residents are encouraged to apply online, otherwise call the admissions office.
  • The Headteacher can tell you about the admission arrangements and the opportunities to visit the school.
  • Places are offered according to the admissions criteria. Late applications will be considered after all those received on-time.
