APPLYING FOR SCHOOL PLACES
For Lancashire resident families who will require a primary or secondary place in September 2023 the means of application is via Lancashire’s online system at: www.lancashire.gov.uk/schools
Lancashire’s online system provides information about admission arrangements to all Lancashire Schools.
This will go live from September 2022
It is quick and easy to use and offers an email receipt of all submitted applications. Please ensure that you hit the “submit” button when you are ready to send in your completed online application. You must apply even if you already have siblings at your preferred school or academy. If you live in Lancashire you can include out of area preferences on your online application.
If you have submitted and received an email acknowledgment of an online application you can log back onto the system during the application period to view this. If however, you go back into your original application this may have been over written (it definitely will if you make any changes). It will then no longer be valid. This applies for all changes, even very minor ones e.g. hyphens, apostrophes and typo corrections.
To ensure that your online application remains valid you are therefore strongly advised to press the re-submit button if you revisit the system at any time during the application period (whether or not changes were made). You should then receive a further confirmation email.

Please see attached our admissions policy for 2023. This outlines our admission and appeal arrangements.
Due to Covid-19 the school has applied for a variation to our admissions arrangements in relation to a faith reference for the 2022 admissions. The Office of the Schools Adjudicator has agreed to the variation the arrangement is as follows:
“In the event that during the period specified for attendance at worship the church has been closed for public worship and has not provided alternative premises for that worship, the requirements of these admissions arrangements in relation to attendance will only apply to the period when the church or alternative premises have been available for public worship”.
The SEND Information, Advice and Support Team are offering some zoom sessions for parents and carers of SEND children who will be starting primary or secondary school in 2021 – please click on the link below for further information
If you’re not happy with the school place you’re given, you can appeal for any school. Further information about the appeal process can be gained from Lancashire County Council. Please follow the link below for advice re the appeal arrangements and to access the online admissions appeal form:
