Admissions and Transfers
Admissions to our school take place under Blackpool Council's Admission Arrangements for Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools. Full details of our Admission Policy and information about school admissions and school appeals can be found on the Blackpool Council website.

We admit children into our Reception classes when their 5th birthday falls between 1st September and 31st August of a particular academic year. Many parents and carers choose our school because they prefer their child to attend a Church School. The maximum number of children normally admitted to each year group is sixty. Parents and carers of new Reception children are invited to visit school prior to applying for a place, to look around and hear about the life and work of our school.
The closing date for applications for children starting school in September 2017 was Sunday, 15th January 2017. The National Offer Day for Reception places for September 2016 was Sunday, 16th April 2017.
Children may be admitted to other year groups if places are available. Such non-routine admissions usually take place on a Monday or at the beginning of a new half term if that is more appropriate. Visits to the school prior to such an admission are encouraged.
If you would like to enquire about a place for your child in our school (or in our Nursery) please contact the School Office on 01253 354672.
Our local secondary schools - Blackpool Aspire Academy, Montgomery High School, Unity Academy, St Mary's Catholic Academy and any other high school which parents and carers choose - make arrangements to see their pupils before transfer and our children visit their new high school during their last term with us. Throughout the whole year we work closely with our colleagues in these schools, and we are involved in many shared activities, to ensure that our children’s transfer to secondary education is as smooth and problem free as possible.
