St John the Baptist RC Primary School is situated in the Diocese of Plymouth and is maintained by Devon Local Education Authority. The school serves the Roman Catholic parish of Dartmouth.

We welcome applications from both Catholic and Non Catholic families although priority is given to Catholic families.

The Governing Body of the school is responsible for determining and administering the arrangements. This process will operate in line with Devon co-ordinated scheme for admissions. If you are interested in your child attending St Johns, please contact the Headteacher in the first instance. Formal applications can now only be made via Devon County Council.Please click here to apply online via their website or to obtain further information on the admissions procedure.

The school’s planned admission number is 12 pupils. The school operates a single point of admission. Therefore a child whose fifth birthday falls between 1st September and 31st August will be admitted at the start of the Autumn term in September. We usually have places available in most year groups so please telephone the school if more information is required.
