Admissions and Catchment

Admissions to St John’s C.E. Primary School is managed by Stockport Council and as such it is the council who make the decisions regarding entry to the Reception class. There is a formal online application process with strict deadlines. Information on this process as well as advice on completing your application is available here. The contact details for the councils admissions service support are: or 0161 217 6028.

Admissions to school years other than Reception is managed through a waiting list system. Again the Stockport admissions team will support families in gaining a place at St John’s.
