In accordance with the Department for Education (DfE) School Admissions Code, Halton Local Authority (LA) has agreed a coordinated scheme for admissions to primary and secondary schools.
For admission to secondary school, booklets are delivered to all primary schools, the Halton Direct Link offices and can also be requested from Halton LA’s Child Place Planning Team. Parents can also save and print their own copy of the booklet or preference form by opening the relevant booklet in PDF format on the Halton LA’s website on the following link.
If the closing date for applications has passed parents are advised to call into any of the Halton Direct Link Offices or to contact the Child Place Planning Team on 0151 511 7271 or 0151 511 7338.
Parents can also speak to Ms Roberts, Head of Yr7 and Transition, about their child’s move from primary school to the Academy. Parents can request a look round the school during the school day or arrange to come in and speak to Ms Roberts to discuss any concerns or questions they may have about their child’s transition to secondary school.
Applications to join the Academy are coordinated by Halton LA. For full details on how to apply, whether this be for a Year 7 place for the next academic year or a place during the current academic year in Years 7-11, please click on the link above and select the appropriate booklet.
