Applying for a place mid year
(In-Year admissions)

Moving house in Lancashire? Or moving into Lancashire?

If you wish for your child to start at our school mid year, please phone us to enquire about spaces. Tel: 01772 556306. We will be able to tell you if there are spaces in the year group(s) you want.

We keep contact information of parents who have enquired about places at our school. However, we no longer keep a waiting list. This is due to a change in the School Admissions Code from 31st October 2021.

If we have space, you can apply online for the place(s) via Lancashire local authority (LLA). Please click here to apply online. LLA will be in touch regarding the school offered for your child. We cannot admit your child, even if we have space, without notification of a succesful application from LLA.

If we do not have a space in the year group(s) you want, you may still apply but this will be an appeal. The appeal panel will decide if a place is to be allocated at our school or at a different one where there is space.
