If you live in the Greenwich borough you need to apply for a secondary school through them. If you live in another borough, you need to apply through your home authority even if you wish to apply for a place at St Paul’s Academy, or any other Greenwich school.

You can do this by using the e-admissions portal, which can be found on the RBG website or if you would rather complete a paper form and you live in Greenwich, you must use the Royal Borough of Greenwich’s Common Application Form.

If you are applying for a faith place at St Paul’s Academy, you must also complete one of our Supplementary Information Forms. These can be downloaded from our website, or you can request one to be sent to you.

You will need to ask your priest or religious leader of where you practice to sign your form and you must return it to us by Monday 31 October. There have been some amendments to requirements around church attendance due to COVID. Please see the statement below:

On the advice of the Education Commission of the Archdiocese of Southwark, the governing body of St Paul’s Academy has agreed the following statement in order to clarify how its faith-based oversubscription criteria will be interpreted whilst churches are closed or attendance at church is not possible due to COVID-19. This statement has been shared widely with parishes in order to ensure that determinations made by parish priests concerning regular practice of the faith are being made on a consistent basis.

The suspension of the obligation to attend Sunday Mass was announced on 18th March 2020 by Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales. If a parent/carer attended Mass at a particular parish (or parishes) prior to 18th March 2020 then they will be considered to have attended Mass in that parish (or parishes) regularly since that time. This will remain the case until the Sunday obligation is reintroduced by the Bishops.

Please also provide copies of religious documents as stated on the SIF.

If you are not applying for a faith place, your application will be assessed on distance from your home to the school. This is called a community application.

Please refer to our Admissions Arrangements for criteria on faith applications and community applications. This document can be found under the Join Us tab on our website.
