Applications for primary and secondary school is opened from Friday 1st September 2023. The link to apply is www.lancashire.gov.uk/schools.
The closing date for Primary School Applications is 15th January 2024.
If you need to make a late application, please contact the Local Area Office.
**Please print off and complete the Supplementary Form and return this to school before the closing date**.
In-Year Admissions / Non-routine Admissions
It sometimes happens that a child needs to change school other than at the “normal” time; such admissions are known as non-routine or in-year admissions. Parents wishing their child to attend this school should arrange to visit the school. They will be provided with an application form. If there is a place in the appropriate class, then the governors will arrange for the admission to take place. If there is no place, then the admissions committee will consider the application and information about how to appeal against the refusal will be provided.
