Catholic Primary School and Admissions Group

The Background – From the outset a parish school was part of the plan for the Cockfosters Catholic Community. When the parish was founded in 1936 it was a condition from the Diocese of Westminster that it should have a church and school. This occurred at that time as a fee paying school run by the Benedictine sisters. The sisters no longer run or manage this school and it is in a separate school setting from the Parish of Christ the King, Cockfosters.

The Present – The absence of a parish school was the reason that the Catholic Primary School Group was originally formed. Current school group data shows that few children of our parish get places at a Catholic School each year. Most also fail to get into the other voluntary aided church schools in the area. Please click on the updates below for further information.

Next Steps – Should you, as a parent or guardian, require guidance and support on the admissions procedures for local Catholic Primary Schools, please contact the Catholic & Primary Admissions Group for the parish via the parish office or send an email to Daniel Keane at

Also, inform the parish priest and the Admissions Group on the outcome of your application.
