Applications for admission to the school for September 2018 should be made on-line at www.lancashire.gov.uk/schools between September 2017 and 15th January, 2018. It is not normally possible to change the order of your preferences for schools after the closing date.
Parents must complete the Local Authority electronic form, stating three preferences. Parents who wish their application to this Church school to be considered against the faith criteria should also complete the supplementary form. If the school is oversubscribed, a failure to complete the supplementary form may result in your application for a place in this school being considered against lower priority criteria as the Governing Body will have no information upon which to assess the worship attendance.
When you make your applications on-line on the common application form; the Diocesan Supplementary Form appears when you click “Submit”. It should be printed off and handed in to the appropriate school or schools.
Information about the Diocesan form and an copy of the form can be found here:
Letters informing parents of whether or not their child has been allocated a place will be sent out by the Local Authority on 16th April, 2018. Parents of children not admitted will be informed of the reason and offered an alternative place by the Authority.
