New CRP Process for 2024/25

The CRP process introduced new options for collecting points in 2020. These alterations were made as it was understood that collecting points from shul attendance alone could be challenging for some in a Covid-safe context.

If you completed a form in the last two years, the process has now been reviewed and updated, as these emergency measures are no longer required.

Click here for a detailed explanation of the CRP process and a list of Frequently Asked Questions.  If you have any further questions, please contact

To be considered a priority applicant, all prospective applications need to submit a CRP, even if they submitted one for Nursery or have a sibling at the school.

Appellants will be notified of their hearing date at least 10 school days before the hearing.
