Primary to Year 7 Admissions

All Saints’ Roman Catholic High School is part of a co-ordinated admissions scheme which applies to families seeking school places for September 2023. 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:

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 Admissions 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.

In-Year Admissions

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 oversubscribed 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.

In-Year Application Form


Parents/carers have a statutory right to appeal if a child is not offered a place. This should be done by writing to the Academy setting out your grounds for appeal no later than 20 Academy days after the decision letter has been received. The appeal will be arranged on behalf of the Academy's local governing body by the appointed organisation and will be heard by an independent panel. The decision of the panel will be binding on the Academy.

The appeals should be submitted via the on-line form at
