Admissions Arrangments


Admission authorities are required to consult if they intend to make changes to their admission arrangements. The law states that a consultation to make changes must take place for a minimum of six weeks between 1 October and 31 January.

We are not proposing to make any changes to our admission arrangements for academic year 2020/2021 however; other schools in Warrington are proposing to make changes to their admission arrangements for pupils joining from September 2020.

The consultation period runs from 6 December 2018 until 31 January 2019.

To view the proposed arrangements, please visit the Council’s website
