Apply for a primary school place

Unavailability of online applications

The online school admissions system will be temporarily unavailable from 7pm on Monday 19 March due to essential maintenance work.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

1. Overview

If you live in Lancashire you must follow Lancashire County Council's application process, even if any of your preferred schools are outside Lancashire. 

You need to apply for a place at a primary school, even if it's linked to your child’s nursery, or your child's brother or sister is already at the school.

Applications for children starting primary school in September 2018 have now closed. If you've missed the deadline, please read the important information contained within sections 2-4 then fill in a late application in section 9 as soon as possible.
