Moving to a secondary school can be both exciting and daunting for a child and their parents. We realize that you and your child may have a long list of questions, worries and concerns which we hope the information we provide on joining St Paul's and our Transition programme will answer and provide reassurance.
All the staff at St Paul's work hard to guide and support our new students so that they can cope with the challenges joining a new school presents, to allow them to settle-in quickly and make new friends, develop good learning habits, start making good academic progress and ultimately be happy in their new environment.
If you have any questions or concerns about the transition process please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Lisa Newton, Admissions Officer, at the number outlined.
Our prospectus is available to view online, please follow the link at the bottom of the page.
Every Day is Open Day and we would be happy to welcome you. Please contact our Admissions Secretary at the number outlined to make an appointment.

Appeals resulting from year of entry or transfer applications for admission in September 2017 to community and voluntary controlled schools will be heard according to the following timetable – for other types of schools please refer to the school record in the Directory of Surrey schools :
|School||Offer||Appeals lodged by||Appeals to be heard by|
|Secondary||1 March 2017||29 March 2017||16 June 2017 (40 School days)|
Please note, appeals will not start being heard until after the relevant closing date has passed.
Appeals lodged after these dates will be heard within 40 school days of the appeal deadline or 30 school days of being lodged, whichever is the later date.
Appellants will be sent notification of their appeal hearing at least 10 clear school days in advance of the hearing.
Appellants will be sent a copy of the school's case seven clear working days in advance of the hearing.
If an appellant wishes to submit further evidence which was not included with their initial appeal, they must make sure that it is received no later than 5pm on the day preceding three clear working days prior to the appeal hearing date.
Any additional evidence or information received after this date might not be considered at the appeal hearing. The appeal panel must decide whether it should be considered taking into account its significance and the effect of a possible need to adjourn the hearing.
