Determined admission arrangements for Knowsley schools 2025/26

Knowsley Council has published its final school admission arrangements for the 2025/26 school year. Parents can view the arrangements here.

Knowsley Council consulted with schools, neighbouring local authorities, church authorities, parents and members of the public before determining admission arrangements for the 2025/26 intake of nursery, reception and year 7 pupils. 

An online public consultation was undertaken via this website for the required six-week period from 14 December 2023 to 26 January 2024.

No comments or objections were received in respect of the proposed arrangements and subsequently the arrangements have been determined and can be viewed via the links below.

Determined admission arrangements 

Co-ordinated primary and secondary admission schemes

The Local Authority has also formulated the co-ordinated primary and secondary admission schemes; these are the procedures for applying for places and the allocation processes for entry to school in the 2025/26 school year and apply to all schools/academies in the Local Authority area.

Academies and Voluntary Aided Schools (Catholic and Church of England) are also required to determine their admission arrangements on an annual basis.


Parents have a right to raise an objection with the Schools Adjudicator if they believe that any determined arrangements are not lawful or do not comply with the mandatory elements of the National School Admissions Code. Full details of how to raise an objection are given on the DFE website. Objections must be submitted no later than 15 May 2024.

The determined admission policies and admission numbers for Voluntary Aided Schools/Faith Academies in Knowsley, and any Academies that are not adopting the Local Authority admission policy, can be accessed from the links below and can also be viewed on the individual school website.
