In Year Admissions Information & In Year Application Form

In Year Admissions

If you are applying for a school place for your child who is due to start in Reception, you are required to apply online using the Lancashire County Council website and linked Diocesan forms. Applications can be made between 1st September and mid January in the academic year before your child is 5.

Details of the schools admissions arrangements can be found on our website under Key Information/Admissions.

Please do not hesitate to contact us to come and have a look around. We also have OPEN DAYS each year (usually October) for new Reception Class starters and details will be posted on our website prior to the event.

If you are interested in a place in another school year please contact the school office on 01253 821392 who will be able to advise on current numbers in year groups and the availability of places.

Please note that you cannot re-appeal for a place at a school within the same school year unless there has been relevant, significant and material change in the family circumstances.

Waiting Lists

A waiting list for places will be kept in accordance with the priorities in the published admission arrangements. Applications received after letters offering places have been issued will be kept on the waiting list and prioritised according to the admissions criteria. Late applications may therefore be slotted into the waiting list according to their individual priority within the admissions criteria. If a place becomes available within the school’s published admissions number, the child whose name is at the top of the list will be offered a place. This is not dependent upon an appeal having been submitted for the child concerned. The waiting list will be kept until the end of the autumn term in the academic year of admission.
