If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below. 


Applying for a place at our school during the school year

(In-year admissions)

In Year Admissions are admissions to school that take place outside the normal admissions rounds (ie Reception and Year 7)


If you are new to the area and require a school place or if you already reside in the area and you want to move your child from their current local school to our school, your application should be made directly to our school and the child will be admitted where there are available places.


To apply for a place, complete our In-Year Admissions form below and return to


If you have any questions in relation to in-year admissions, please contact us either by email or by phone on 01772 422769.


You may ring the school office to confirm that the form has been received.


Your application will be acknowledged upon receipt and we will advise you of the outcome within a maximum of 15 schools days.


The school will consider all such applications and if the year group applied for has space available, then a place will be offered.  If a place is not available, then the child's parent can ask for their child's name to be added to the appropriate waiting list.  As with admissions at the start of the academic year, parents whose applications are turned down are entitled to appeal.




The school's admission appeals are supported by Lancashire County Council. If the Governing body cannot offer a school place, parents have the right to make an appeal.


This appeal should be submitted using the link below within twenty days of refusal of admission. The appeal provides you with an opportunity to explain why you wish to register your child at our school. The appeal

forms and advice on how to complete them is available on the Lancashire County Council website:


Lancashire County Council will contact you in respect of 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, ie 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.
