First Steps

First things first; come and see us. Visit during the school day are preferable so you can see the school in action and soak up the warm and genuine atmosphere.

To progress an application we encourage you to complete a registration form as soon as possible. We are committed to retaining small class sizes and will cap year groups in order to maintain this. For the youngest children joining us at Barlborough nursery, an informal and flexible settling-in period is offered so they take their first steps at their pace.

Students joining the school are strongly encouraged to spend a taster day or two with their prospective classmates, allowing them to start the process of making friends right from the get-go.

For students looking to join Mount St Mary’s College at 11 years or above, our entrance assessment is held at the end of January prior to students joining the following September. To register for the entrance assessment please contact the admissions team at

The entrance assessment for entry into years 7, 8 and 9 in September 2020 will be held in January 2020.
