Reception Admissions


Applications for places to start with our new Reception intake each September are made through Lancashire County Council.  It is their policy to handle all questions and issues arising throughout this application process.


Reception pupils are normally admitted to school in the September following their 4th birthday.  Prospective parents are most welcome to make an appointment to look around our school.  Parents are asked to complete Lancashire County Council's on-line application form in the Autumn of the year before their child is due to start school and places are allocated in the late Spring / early Summer Term (please see the Timetable for Admissions below). 


At Shakespeare School we have a maximum intake of 60 children.  


If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of Lancashire County Council admission arrangements below.
