Admission to reception classes for September 2022


Our school is a welcoming Church of England School in Everton, Liverpool. We invite all interested parents, with children eligible for a reception place in 2022, to apply for a place at our school. We do however, ask all parents applying for a place here to respect our Christian ethos and its importance to the school community.

We’d love to tell you more and show you around our school. We have arranged meetings for prospective parents on:

19th October 2021

23rd November 2021

Please ring school on 0151 263 4206 to book your place.

 We will admit 60 pupils into our reception classes. If we receive less than 60 applications for places, all children will be admitted. If we receive more applications than 60, applications will be considered against our school's admissions criteria, set out below.

Beacon Nursery Children

Parents of children already in our Nursery will need to follow the same application process for a reception place, as being in our nursery class does not guarantee a place in one of our reception classes. If school is oversubscribed they will be considered against the same admission’s criteria as other applicants.

How to apply

The Governors are the Admitting Authority but the Local Authority continue to coordinate admissions to our reception classes for September 2022.

From the 12th September 2021, if you live in Liverpool and your child is eligible for reception class in 2022, you can apply on line for a school place.

Click here to read advice on how to apply.  Applications close on 15th January 2022.

If you do not live in Liverpool, you should apply through the local authority where you do live.

Please note, as the governors are now the Admitting Authority for the school, social/medical evidence under Criteria 2 needs to be submitted directly to school before the closing date. Your preference form should still be submitted to the LA.
