Determined Admission Arrangements for Knowsley Schools 2017/18

The Council consulted with schools, local authorities, church authorities and parents before determining admission arrangements for the September 2017 intake of nursery, reception and Y7 pupils (the on-line section being done on this website).

Below are the results of the consultation:

The determined admission policies for community and controlled schools, plus the admission numbers – that is the number of places to be offered at each school.

The determined admission policies and numbers for voluntary aided schools (Catholic and most Church of England Schools) – which can also be obtained from the individual school.

Secondary Centres for Learning

Primary Schools


Huyton and Knowsley Village

Prescot, Whiston and Cronton


Parents have a right to raise an objection with the Schools Adjudicator if they believe that the policies 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 2016.

Also below are the primary and secondary schemes.  These documents give the arrangements for applying for places, dates, processes etc.

All these practical details are published in September 2017 in the more user-friendly form of the admissions booklets – three booklets, one for nursery, primary and secondary.  These booklets contain the relevant application form and all the information parents need on how to apply for places.
