Waiting list

The governing body of St Richard Reynolds College is the admissions authority and holds and manages it's own waiting lists separate from the local authority. Your child will be automatically added to our waiting list if you were not offered a place at a higher preference school. 

Some places were offered on Friday 26th March 2019 to children on the waiting list. The waiting list was ranked according to the High School admissions policy. All successful applicants have been informed.

The College receives a large number of queries after offers have been sent out. If you have a question about admissions, please email the admissions department at and the admissions officer will repsond as soon as possible.

If you wish for your child to be placed on the Yr 7 2019 waiting list please email with the following details:

1) Child's Name
2) Child's DOB
3) Child's Address
4) Contact number
5) Confirmation if originally applied.

Families have two weeks from National Offer Day to confirm whether they will be accepting initial offers made to their Local Authority.  Should places become available AFTER this time, they will be allocated and offered according to the published over-subscription criteria week beginning 25th March 2019

Please note: The College Office staff does not have visibility of the waiting list and are unable to give personal information regarding positions on the waiting list.
