If you wish to apply for a transfer to La Retraite RC Girls’ School from your daughter’s current secondary school or because she doesn’t currently have a place in a school, please complete the online application form starting below. If your daughter has not previously sat a non-verbal reasoning test at La Retraite, we shall also require a copy of her latest school report/results. This is for banding purposes only, as detailed in our admissions policy. You will also be required to contact your local council and make them aware that you wish to apply to La Retraite.

La Retraite will consider all applications and once you have completed the application form we will contact you directly. If the year group has space, a place will be offered. If more applications are received than available places, then the oversubscription criteria for the current live Admissions Policy, (for September 2018) will be used. This can be seen on the website. If the year group is currently full, the applicant will be placed on the waiting list.
