Admission Arrangements for Knowsley Schools 2022/23

The council consulted with schools, neighbouring local authorities, church authorities and parents before determining admission arrangements for the 2022/23 intake of nursery, reception and Y7 pupils.

An online public consultation was undertaken via this website for the required six week period (from 14 December 2020 to 31 January 2021).
