September 2022 Admissions

Dear Prospective Parent,

Thank you for your interest in our Outstanding School. We are a two-form entry Primary School situated on Sherwood Way in Fulwood. Each year, we welcome 60 children into our EYFS Unit. Applications to our Foundation Unit (Reception) for September 2022 are made directly to Lancashire County Council. For details of the Lancashire County Council Admissions Policy and to apply for a Reception place, please visit For further assistance with your application please ring 0300 123 6707

We are a high achieving Primary School and we have an excellent reputation within the area. Each year, we receive a very high number of applications to our EYFS Unit (Reception intake). Before the pandemic, we opened our doors for an open day each year and our Year 6 pupils would support our staff in providing a high number of prospective parents with a tour of our School. The Health and Safety of our staff and pupils remains our priority and for this reason we will not be holding an open day for September 2022 admissions. We understand that this will be disappointing for our prospective parents but it is vital that we maintain measures that will reduce any potential disruption to our staff and current pupils' face to face education in this next Academic Year. Parents and children will be invited into School once the offer of a place has been made through the local authority.

Please enjoy reading the wealth of information on our website. Our Newsletters, Galleries and News Items will all give you a flavour for our Curriculum, our learning environment, extra-curricular opportunities and our pupils' achievements. I am pleased to enclose a video link to our School Tour, led by our pupils and a link to our most recent Welcome video that was prepared for parents of children starting School this year. You may also like to visit our Class Pages to view key information for each Year Group and our Introductory videos for the Academic Year 2021-2022.

It is with sincere hope that we will meet in person soon and look forward to welcoming you into School in 2022, once Primary places have been allocated.
