We are a community primary school and welcome all applicants – regardless of geographic location. We are a two form entry school, with a reception cohort of 60 children. As a community school, we are governed by the Knowsley School Admissions Team, who determine the allocation of places.

In Knowsley, children are admitted to reception classes at the beginning of the school year in which they have their fifth birthday. This means children who have their fifth birthday on or between 1 September 2024 and 31 August 2025 can take up a full-time reception class place from the beginning of the Autumn term in September 2024.
The annual national closing date for reception class applications is the 15 January. The Knowsley application is for use by Knowsley residents only.
