Admissions update – Covid-19

Due to the current Covid-19 crisis, we would like to advise of the following in relation to admissions to Corpus Christi Catholic High School.

  1. The Admissions team continues to work remotely.  Mrs Harris can be contacted on  We ask that, where possible, documentation be sent electronically to this email.  Paper documentation that is sent to the school will of course be considered in due course, but there is likely to be a delay.
  2. Regarding Year 7 admissions for September 2020, all 215 available places have now been offered.  We continue to maintain the waiting list in accordance with our admissions policy. 
  3. Admissions Appeals:  The deadline for the receipt of appeals for admission to Year 7 in September 2020 has now passed.  The Appeals Hearings scheduled for the end of April will not take place in the usual format of a public meeting.  We are working on the way forward to ensure that appeals can be considered.  If you have submitted an appeal we will contact you to update you as soon as we can. 
  4. Admissions Consultation 2021: We will now be unable to conclude the consultation process for Admissions 2021 due to the present national crisis.  Governors have therefore decided that the current Admissions Policy will remain in place for September 2021.   If you have any queries on this matter please email Mrs Willis on

The Governing Body is the admitting authority for Corpus Christi Catholic High School.  Corpus Christi admits up to 215 pupils into each year group. This standard admission number is set by Governors in accordance with the capacity survey completed with Cardiff Council and the Welsh Government. If there are more than 215 applications, Governors will use the oversubscription criteria set out in the Admissions Policy.
