Everything you need to know about applying for a place at Cardinal Newman Catholic School...
The school offers a Catholic education. The governors expect that parents applying for places for their children will accept and uphold the Catholic character and ethos of the school. The school was set up primarily to serve the Catholic community in the Brighton and Hove deanery.
Although Catholic children have priority of admission, the Governing Body also welcomes applications from those of other denominations and faiths who support the religious ethos of the school. Having consulted with the Diocese, Local Authority, other admission authorities and other relevant groups, the Governors intend to admit into Year 7 in September 2024, up to 360 students without reference to ability or aptitude.
Applications for September 2024 admission are now open. Please click on the button below to find out more about how to apply.
