St John’s Catholic Primary School is in the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton. We serve the parish of St John the Evangelist in Horsham. The primary purpose of a Catholic school is to educate children in line with the Catholic faith and traditions of the Church. However we are a diverse and multi-cultural school. We welcome children and their families from all backgrounds, faiths and heritage. Our admissions policy explains how places at St John’s Catholic school are allocated.

If you have any questions regarding admissions please speak to the school office: office@stjohnshorsham.school01403 265447.

New Starts

We have no more planned open days for September 2024 entry. If you were unable to attend one and wish to visit the school, please get in touch with the school office – / 01403 265447.

If you are a Catholic or other religious denomination family, you must also fill in a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) and return it to the school. This will help us to rank your application in accordance with the school’s admission policy.

Moving to St John’s within the school year

If you require a school place during the year (e.g., when moving house) please refer to the West Sussex website regarding in-year admission. We work closely with the West Sussex admissions as the school does hold a waiting list for some year groups and admission is based on our admissions policy. Please contact the school office to enquire about places; we can offer advice and support through the process / 01403 265447.
