St. Cuthbert's Catholic Primary School

With Jesus we love, learn and pray: to grow in the St. Cuthbert's way.


It is intended to admit a maximum of 60 pupils at the beginning of the new school year. St. Cuthbert's follows the admission procedure suggested by the L.E.A.


At St. Cuthbert's, the children will enter a purpose built Department that puts the reception year as a high priority. All parents are invited to visit the school before the admission of their children and discuss with the Head and class teachers any issues or concerns they may have. We are happy to accommodate any parent requesting a tour of the school.



In the event of a place being refused, parents/guardians have the right to appeal.


Appeal forms are available from:

 The Archdiocese of Liverpool,

 Schools Department, LACE,
 Croxteth Drive,

 Sefton Park,


 L17 1AA.


Alternatively please call 0151 522 1071 between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday and we will send you an appeal form through the post or apply on line.
