Published on: Wednesday, 03-September-2014

Knowsley parents and carers can now apply for their child’s primary or secondary school place for September 2015.

If your child is currently in Year 6 at primary school then you need to complete an application for a secondary school place by Friday 31 October 2014.

The closing date for a reception place at primary school is Thursday 15 January 2015.

Applications can be made online using the council’s website or by completing a paper form which is available in the relevant admissions booklet.

There are guidance notes on screen to help parents/carers through the online application process and the form can be amended at any point up to the closing date by logging back into the application. 

To complete an application online, visit our school admissions page.

Those who apply online should receive an email confirming a place which will be sent out on the same day that offer letters are posted out (for secondary school places, this is Monday 2 March 2015 and Thursday 16 April 2015 for reception and junior places).

Admission booklets are available from any Knowsley primary school or by contacting the Admissions Team on 0151 443 5142/43. The booklet is also available here.
