Don’t let the ghostly goings-on at Hallowe’en catch you out this year – please remember that applications for secondary school places in Lancashire need to be in by Sunday 31 October.
The online application system is open until 11:59 pm for all those applying for a secondary school place.
Online via the county council’s website is the quickest and easiest way to apply for a place.
It is important to remember that parents need to submit an application form for all children starting school, even if the child has an older brother or sister at the school concerned.
If you’re applying for a place for a child starting primary school, the closing date is Saturday 15 January 2022, but making sure your application is in early gives you extra time in case there are any changes.
For more information go to www.lancashire.gov.uk/schools, where you’ll find all the details you need.
You can also call 0300 123 6707, to find out more, and for support.
Parents whose children attend Lancashire schools or academies, but live in another local authority area, should apply via the local authority where they live.
