Decisions about admissions to the school are made by the Governing Body, as Stella Maris is a Voluntary Aided School.  As a Catholic school, we obviously give priority to Catholic children, and if your child is a Catholic this must be evidenced by providing a copy of the Baptismal Certificate.

Not all children at the school are Catholics, however, and many parents choose the school because they like its ethos and the extra dimension brought to what we do by our belief in Christian values.
