Admissions

The school welcomes applications from parents and carers who wish their son or daughter to attend St Joan of Arc Catholic School.

The students of St Joan of Arc Catholic School are our greatest ambassadors and we are very proud of them. We therefore encourage all prospective students and their families to visit us so that you can meet
 our students and see this for yourself.

The school holds an open evening (2017 - October 5th) and open morning (2017 - October 6th) for Year 7 entry  and in November for our Sixth Form. These events provide prospective students and their parents the opportunity to find out more about the school.

We welcome all enquiries. If you are unable to visit us on one of our Open Events we will arrange for a senior student to give you a personal tour of the school.

We invite all new students to an induction and orientation day in July in preparation for their admission in September. For the new Year 7 parents there is an induction evening when you will meet your child’s form tutor and
 ask any questions you may still have about St Joan’s.

Please be aware that the school is closed on Friday 20th October as St Joan's is hosting a Deanery Formation Day for teachers from the Catholic School's in our Watford Deanery. We will therefore be unable to accept any applications on that day and the school is also closed the following week for half term between Monday 23rd to Friday 27th October.

The deadline for applications is 4:00 pm on Tuesday 31st October after which time the school reception will be closed.
