School Admissions

If you live in England you must apply for a school place on your 'home' local authority's application form (i.e the authority where you live) even if you are applying for a school in another local authority. Applicants who live outside of England can apply direct to Cheshire East for a Cheshire East school.

Any personal or sensitive information that you give to us will be held in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. For details about how we may use your information please see our admissions data protection statement (PDF, 82KB)

In Year Admissions

Applications for school places ‘in year’ are for admission after the first day of the school year into any year group but this does not include applications being made for admission to the new reception and year 7 class for September admission. You will need to complete our In Year Application form, which will be forwarded to your schools of choice.

If you wish to apply for a school in another local authority, you will need to contact the relevant authority to find out how to make an application.
