On the 1st March 2018 all Local Authorities informed parents of the secondary school their child has been allocated. Not all parents will necessarily have received their first choice of school. For September 2018 the full allocation of 165 student places has been made at Cardinal Allen Catholic High School. If your child has not been allocated a place at Cardinal Allen and you would like to try to secure a place for them, please follow the process below. We would strongly advise you not to reject the place at the school your child has been allocated until you hear the outcome of the Appeal process.
