Don’t let the ghosts and ghouls catch you out this year – applications for secondary school places in Lancashire need to be in by Tuesday 31 October.
The online application system is open until 11:59 pm on 31 October 2017.
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 15 January 2018, but making sure your application is in early gives you extra time in case there are queries.

Parents whose children attend Lancashire primary schools or academies, but live in another local authority area, should apply via the local authority where they live.
