We admit children into our Reception classes when their 5th birthday falls between 1st September and 31st August of a particular academic year. The maximum number of children normally admitted to each year group is thirty. Parents and carers of new Reception children are welcome to visit school prior to applying for a place, to look around and hear about our school.  Please contact the school office on 01253 807495 to make an appointment.

The closing date for applications for our Reception class for September 2023 closes on 15th January 2023.  Any parents/carers who have not yet applied for a school place should do so as a matter of urgency to the Local Authority in which they live.  For further details please click here if you live in Blackpool, or here if you live in Lancashire.

If you have just moved into the area, or your child is already attending a primary school in Blackpool and you are thinking of moving them to a different school, please click here for more information on how this works.
