Margaret Roper Catholic Primary School



The closing date for applications for Reception class places for September 2015 in Primary schools in the Local Authority of Croydon is 15th January 2015.

Parents of children born between 1.9.2010 and 31.8.2011 who wish to apply for a place at Margaret Roper Catholic Primary School, should ensure that they complete the Supplementary Information Form (SIF) and obtain a reference from their Parish Priest. Although the closing date for applications is 15th January 2015 in line with the Local Authority deadline, Margaret Roper School would welcome receipt of the SIF and any accompanying paperwork well before this deadline, anytime after 5th September to enable the Governors to apply their admissions Criteria.

A further Croydon Local Education Authority form also needs to be completed. Please ensure you complete this either ‘on-line’ at or contact Admissions Team, Education Department, Taberner House, Park Lane, Croydon, CR9 1TP.  Telephone: 8686 4433.  It is important that you do not complete a ‘paper’ application form if you apply ‘on-line’.


Our open morning takes place on the 4th November 2014 between 10am and 11.45am. This will be an opportunity to meet the Headteacher and tour the school.  Should you require further assistance, please use the contact details below.
