Primary school admissions

Information about first admission to reception class in September 2018.

The online form should be completed by Warrington residents only. If you wish to state a preference for a Warrington school and live outside the area you should apply through your own Local Authority.

If your child was born between 1 September 2013 and 31 August 2014 they are due to start reception class in September 2018.

If your child currently attends a maintained, voluntary or private nursery you should receive a letter and a primary school admissions leaflet [pdf] which will give details about the application process.

If your child does not attend a nursery setting we are unable to send any correspondence to you therefore we strongly advise you to read the leaflet and booklet before applying.

All applicants should read the information booklet Primary Education - Information for Parents 2018-19 [pdf] before completing the application form.

If any of your preferences are for Faith schools then the schools own supplementary form should be completed as well as the online application form. Supplementary forms are also available from the individual schools. The supplementary forms should be returned to the school.

A map of the location [jpg] of all Warrington Primary schools is available for your information.

You will find it useful to have your letter and leaflet to hand when starting your online application form.
