Secondary school admissions
Information about transferring your child from primary school to secondary school in September 2019
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.
Children who are due to start secondary school in September 2019, born 1 September 2007 to 31 August 2008 will receive a letter and an admissions leaflet [pdf] which will give details about the registration and application process.
All applicants should read the information booklet Secondary Education – First Admission to Year 7 - Information for Parents 2019-20 [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 all Warrington Secondary schools [jpg] is available for your information.
You will find it useful to have your letter and leaflet to hand when starting your online application form.
The online application form is available from 3 September 2018 until midnight on 31 October 2018.
You should receive the offer information by post on 1 March 2019. If you have expressed a preference to receive the offer information via email this also will be sent, to the email address provided by you, from 10.00am on 1 March.
In the unlikely event of the email notifying the offer of a school which is different to the offer information in the letter, the school place offered in the letter will always prevail.
