Applying for a local faith school
Whether you’re new to St. Andrew’s or you’ve been part of the church for a while this is where to find all the information you need about applying for a place at one of the local primary & secondary faith schools.
Some of the schools ask for a certain level of attendance to apply for a faith based place, others ask you to simply indicate the level of church attendance and all this information is available on each school’s admissions page.
Please feel free to ask in church or contact us if you have any questions.
And as you go through the application process, please remember Church isn’t just about school registration forms. Our vision at St. Andrew’s is to be a church who KNOW our shepherd’s voice, FOLLOW his ways and SHARE his love in our community; this is at the heart of who we are and everything we do.
Whatever your background, beliefs or situation, we pray that at St. Andrew’s you’ll have the opportunity to hear about and meet with him.
How it all works
All the faith schools in Brighton and Hove include the necessary form in their application packs.
Each year we will remind you of the return dates for the school forms during services and in the notice sheet. Please fill in as much of the form as you can and return it to the church office. After collating the forms we will then be in contact. All forms that we sign will be returned to the schools.

ST. ANDREW’S -
School's admissions page
St Andrew's CE Primary is our linked school and we enjoy a close relationship. We provide pastoral support and regularly welcome the children here to worship. We also regularly share social events together and enjoy the community that brings with it- it's wonderful watching the children starting reception with many friends in the older years to say hello!
The St. Andrew’s school form expects faith applicants to have been attending church ‘at least twice a month for a minimum period of two years immediately prior to applying’.
