St Patrick’s is a Catholic School in the trusteeship of the Diocese of Salford. It is maintained by Lancashire County Council and is a voluntary aided school. The Governing Board is the Admissions Authority and is responsible for taking all decisions on applications for admissions. The co-ordination of admission arrangements is undertaken by the Local Authority. Parents must complete a Local Authority Preference Form online via the website www.lancashire.gov.uk
Full versions of the prospectuses and application form are viewable and downable via both the online application and the Lancashire County Council website. Paper copies of the application form are not routinely available.
If you wish to have your application considered against the school’s religious criteria then you must ALSO complete the Supplementary Form which is available HERE. This form should be returned to the school with the requested documents.
School will consider applications for every age group based on our admissions criteria. Please refer to the admissions policy on the school website.
It sometimes happens that a child needs to change school other than at the “normal” time; such admissions are known as non-routine or in-year admissions. Please contact the school directly to apply for a place (Y1-6).
