The City of Bradford MBC is responsible for coordinating the allocation of school places in Bradford. They provide detailed information about the application process. You can access that information here. In addition to this, a supplementary information form must be completed. The Supplementary Information Form (SIF) must be submitted to school by the closing date as advised by City of Bradford MBC. When you log onto the Bradford website to apply for a school place, there is also a copy of the SIF that you can download there. If you do not complete a SIF, your child will be placed in one of the categories for non-Catholics. We are a Catholic school and our admissions policy prioritises Catholic admissions so please do not forget to complete the form if your child is baptised.
