We joined the Aspire Educational Trust on 1st April 2022 and The Aspire Educational Trust is now the Admissions Authority for our School. 

We welcome enquiries from parents of children at any age, and encourage you to visit us as many times as you wish with your child before they start school.  An open day is also held during the Autumn term each year to help parents make their choice for the following September. The admissions process is administered by Cheshire East Council and an application should be made before mid January of the year your child is due to start school in September.

Policies apply to all admissions from 1st September 2021 including in-year admissions. It will be used during 2021-2022 for allocating places for September 2021 as part of the main admissions round for reception. Cheshire East's fair access protocol will be applied alongside the policy to secure admission of vulnerable pupils from specific groups
