St Agatha’s Catholic Primary School is a school situated at the north end of Kingston Upon Thames and near to Richmond Park in the Archdiocese of Southwark. The school provides an education for mainly, but not exclusively, Catholic children aged 3+ to 11 years. It is essential that the Catholic character of the school’s education is fully understood and supported by all families whose children attend the school.
There are two main separate points for admissions, for Nursery at 3+ and then for Reception at 4+. Where parents are looking for mid year placements in any other classes we are able to offer these where class sizes are less than 30. A place in the Nursery does not guarantee a place in Reception and families have to apply separately for a Reception place.
We are happy to answer any queries that you may have about admission to St Agatha's. Due to Covid 19 we will not be offering individual tours of the school at this time.

Guidance for school governors on interpreting evidence of Catholic Practice in Supplementary Information Forms following the Coronavirus outbreak.
Evidence of Practice
On the advice of the Education Commission of the Archdiocese of Southwark the governing body of St Agatha’s Catholic Primary School 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 COVID19. 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.
