Apply online for a school place
If you are resident in Lancashire, you can apply online for your preferred primary or secondary schools (even if any of these are outside of the county).
Before you apply for a school place you should find out about the help and information available to you. In particular you must read the relevant information for parents:
- starting primary school - information about applying for reception places for September 2022
- starting secondary school - information about applying for Year 7 places for September 2022
- in year admissions - changing schools during the school year - what to consider and how to request a transfer to another school
Further information is available from your area education office.
Applications for children starting primary school or moving to secondary school in September 2022 have now closed. If you've missed the deadline fill in a late application as soon as possible.
You can change your online application at any point before the closing date. Please ensure you resubmit your application if you make any changes.
Any applications received after the deadline will be classed as late.
