School Admissions

Applications for admission are considered according to the criteria listed in our Admissions Policy. 

Please visit Cheshire West & Chester Council in the first instance to enquire about a place for your child. There may be a waiting list for places in some year groups.

For Reception places you need to apply to Cheshire West & Chester Council in the September before your child is due to start - this can be completed online. In addition, you need to complete the Supplementary Information Form (can be downloaded and edited on form) and send it in to school together with copies of your child's birth and baptism certificates.

Prospective parents are welcome to visit our school for a personalised tour.  Please contact us to book.
