Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. We offer a high quality education for children from the age of 4 to 11 and would be delighted to show you our wonderful school and introduce you to our staff and children. Please call us on 01253 722022 to arrange a visit to our school to see what we can offer you and your family.
If you are unable to visit us, please look around our website which will give you an insight into all the wonderful things that happen in our school. If you have any questions, or would like to find out more, please do contact us.
Applications for Primary and Secondary places open each year on 1st September. The closing date for secondary school applications is 31st October, and for primary school places is 15th January. Applications for primary school and secondary school places must be made online at: https://www.lancashire.gov.uk/children-education-families/schools/apply-for-a-school-place/apply-online-for-a-school-place/
If you would like your child's applciation to be considered with a higher priority due to regular Church attendance, you must also complete the Supplementary Form and return this directly to the school office.
If you are new to the area and require a school place, or if you already live in the area and you would like move your child from their current school to our school, your application should be made directly to our school and we will admit your child if we have places available. Before you apply to change schools, it is important that you speak to the current school as a matter of courtesy. If you have any questions in relation to in-year admissions, please contact us either by email or by phone. To apply for a place, complete our in-year admissions form and return to email@example.com
If you would like your in-year application to be considered against our faith and church attendance criteria, you must also complete the Supplementary Form.
Your application will be acknowledged upon receipt and we will advise you of the outcome within a maximum of 15 school days. You may ring the school office to confirm that the form (and accompanying evidence) has been received. Where places are available, but we have more applications than places, the admissions criteria will be applied. (Please refer to our Admissions Arrangements)
If there are no places available, the child will be added to the waiting list and you have the right of appeal. Please see below for appeal information. Please note, that the waiting list does NOT guarantee a place at our school and if your child is currently not in education you should either make an appeal to our school and/or apply for a place at an alternative school. Further information on how to apply for a local school can be found on the Lancashire County Council website:
If the Governing body cannot offer a school place, parents or carers have the right to make an appeal. Our school's admission appeals are supported by Lancashire County Council. The appeal process provides you with an opportunity to explain why you wish to register your child at our school. Any appeal should be submitted using the link within twenty days of refusal of admission. The appeal forms and advice on how to complete them is available on the Lancashire County Council website:
Lancashire County Council will contact you about your appeal application and inform you of the arrangements. The outcome of the appeal will be notified to you in writing. The decision of the Independent Appeal Panel is binding to all parties, both the family and the school. Please note that this right of appeal against the Governors’ decision does not prevent you from making an appeal in respect of any other school.
