Admissions to Reception

If you are looking for a place in Reception for September 2022, please telephone school (from September 2021) to arrange an appointment to have a tour of the school. 

Admissions to Reception are managed by the Local Authority (Bury Council); full information and contact details can be found on their website following the link at the bottom of this page.

You have to apply online with Bury Council between November and January (follow the link below).  Places are allocated by April.


 Our induction process begins at this point. Induction involves a meeting for parents and opportunities for the children to visit the school in June for a taste of school life. There is also the opportunity to have induction sessions in our before/after school club (GOOSE).   Please note this may be reviewed for 2022 in light of Covid19.


We operate a staggered intake in September. For the first ten days, children come to school for either the morning or afternoon session. This allows the children a smooth transition into school and staff the opportunity to get to know the children in smaller groups.
