Primary admissions to Reception Class 2022

If you have a child with a date of birth between 1st September 2017 and 31st August 2018 please contact Pupil and Student Services on 01204 332143/ 332137 to register your child's details. 

The closing date for Primary admissions is 15th January 2022. If you have applied you will receive an offer letter on 16th April 2022, along with this you will receive an appeal form if Bolton Local Authority has not been able to offer you your school of preferred choice



Where the governors are unable to offer a place because the school is over- subscribed, parents have the right to appeal to an independent admission appeal panel, set up under the School Standards and Framework Act, 1998, as amended by the Education Act, 2002.  Parents will have the opportunity to submit their case to the panel in writing and also to attend in order to present their case.  You will normally receive 14 days' notice of the place and time of the hearing.

A leaflet explaining the appeal procedure is obtainable from the School Admission, Bolton Council.

Any appeals organised by the local authority will be timetabled accordingly with the school and this information will be available retrospectively each term.
