Open Evening 2020
Last year, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we were not been able to hold an in-person open evening for our prospective students.
Instead our Senior and Curriculum Leaders produced two videos to show families and pupils around our wonderful school - which may still be useful for prospective families to view.

School Admission Arrangements
Primary to Year 7 Admissions
All Saints’ Roman Catholic High School is part of co-ordinated admissions scheme which applies to families seeking school places for September 2022. The scheme makes applying for a secondary school place more transparent for all parties involved in the admission process. As co-ordination is a legal requirement, all Lancashire schools are included within the arrangements. The aim of the co-ordinated scheme is to provide all parents with an offer of a single school place on the same day.
More information and how to apply can be found on their website at https://www.lancashire.gov.uk/children-education-families/schools/apply-for-a-school-place/starting-secondary-school/
In order for the Governors to have the fullest information when considering admissions, it is requested that a Supplementary Admissions Form is completed and is returned directly to the school by the closing date stipulated by Lancashire County Council. It will be used in the allocation process, strictly in accordance with our Admission Policy.
Following the offer of places, LCC maintains a Reserve/Waiting list of pupils, to which they offer places if any become available. This list is ranked according to our Admission Policy. LCC will maintain this list until the end of the Autumn term 2022, at which point it will be transferred to All Saints’ RC High School.

In-Year Admissions (from September 2021)
An in-year application is for the admission of a child to a relevant age group, but it is submitted on or after the first day of the first term of the admission year (year 7) or it is an application for the admission of a child to an age group other than the relevant age group. For in-year admissions, All Saints’ RC High School is their own admission authority.
Parents can apply for a place for their child at any time.
To apply for a place parents must complete the In-year Application Form, including the relevant supplementary information. The form must be returned to the school.
The All Saints’ admissions team will notify parents of the outcome of their application, in writing within fifteen school days.
Where an applicant is offered a school place following an in-year application, and the offer is accepted, arrangements should be made for the child to start school as soon as possible, particularly when the child is out of school.
Where a place is not available the parent will be given the option to be placed on the waiting list and given information about the right to appeal. When a school year is over subscribed a reserve list will be kept. The reserve list will be ranked according to the school admission criteria
As per the Schools Admission Code, All Saints’ RC High School will inform LCC of the outcome of every admission as soon as reasonably practical, but will aim to do so within two school days.
