Admissions

Holy Family Catholic School is the only Catholic secondary school in the London Borough of Waltham Forest. The school is a mixed, comprehensive, specialist school catering for the needs of boys and girls between the ages of 11 and 19.

Holy Family seeks at all times to foster the growth of students’ understanding and appreciation of their faith.

By naming Holy Family as a preference, it is assumed that parents/carers wish their child to receive a Catholic education and support the aims and ethos of the school as described in the school prospectus. The Governing Body of Holy Family Catholic School intends to admit 240 students into Year 7 for the academic year 2019/2020.

Whenever there are more applicants than places available, priority will always be given to Catholic applicants in accordance with the over-subscription criteria for 2019/20 listed in the admissions document.

If you are a practising Roman Catholic please ask your parish priest for a completed Certificate of Practice.
