Admissions

Please read the criteria for Admissions to our school

St Vincent's Voluntary Catholic Academy is part of the St Cuthbert's Roman Catholic Academy Trust and within the Dioceses of Middlesbrough.

As a Voluntary Catholic Academy, the Trust we are part of is responsible for admissions. It is guided in that responsibility by the requirements of the law, by advice from the Diocesan Trustees and its duty to the Catholic community and the Common Good.
The school provides a Catholic education for children in the west of Hull, with priority being given to baptised Roman Catholic children living in the Hull parish of St. Vincent de Paul.

The school is of average size, with 200 pupils currently on roll.
The children are between the ages of 4 and 11 years old and are taught in single class year groups from Foundation Stage 2 to Year 6.
The admission number Foundation Stage 2 to Year 6 is 30.

School Prospectus

Our prospectus will give you a general overview of our school inside a single document. By reading it you should get a good understanding of who we are and what we stand for.

You’ll be able to see a staff list, job titles and roles, and a list of the governing body. You’ll also be able to read our aims and ethos some of our main policy documentation. We’ll emphasise in our prospectus the things that make our school work. Obviously we cannot cover every aspect of school life so to find out more you’ll need to browse through the rest of the website.

The prospectus, however, is a good place to start.
