Welcome to Sacred Heart
If your child already has a place in a Wandsworth school but you want him/her to transfer to a different school in Wandsworth, you should discuss this with the Headteacher of their current school before making an application.
If a change of school is necessary, you should first find out if there are places available at other local schools by contacting the schools or the Council’s Pupil Services team. You will need to obtain an ‘In-Year’ transfer application form from your child’s current school. The form has a section which must be completed by the school. Please contact Shirley [email protected] to obtain an ‘In-Year’ transfer form.
Parents will be notified of the outcome of their application, once completed application has been received by the school and processed following the Admission Policy. Once we can offer you the place, you can accept the offer, if you chose to decline the place, you can ask to remain on the waiting list for one academic year (although we cannot guarantee that another space will become available).
I didn’t get a place, how can I appeal?
If your child is refused a place at a school, you can appeal against the decision. We subscribe to Wandsworth Borough Council’s admissions appeals service, which manages appeals on our behalf.
Please visit Wandsworth Borough Council’s school admission appeals webpage for the contact details of the appeals service, guidance notes, the appeal form and the current appeals timetable. You can also refer to information about appeals published by the government
Please see the links below regarding our admissions procedures along with key application documents.
Alternatively you may request printed copies from the school office.

Addendum to Admissions Policy September 2020
On the advice of the Education Commission of the Archdiocese of Southwark the governing body of The Federation of Sacred Heart and St. Marys RC Primary Schools have agreed the following statement in order to clarify how its faith-based over subscription criteria will be interpreted whilst churches are closed or attendance at church is not possible due to COVID19. This statement has been shared widely with parishes in order to ensure that determinations made by parish priests concerning regular practice of the faith are being made on a consistent basis.
The suspension of the obligation to attend Sunday Mass was announced on 18th March 2020 by Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales. If a parent/carer attended Mass at particular parish (or parishes) prior to 18th March 2020 then they will be considered to have attended Mass in that parish (or parishes) regularly since that time. This will remain the case until the Sunday obligation is reintroduced by the Bishops.
