Applying for a transfer to a Halton Primary School

Parents/carers wishing to apply for a place outside of the normal intake round in September, or for a place in all other year groups, should read the appropriate guidance notes on the first page of the application form and make contact with their preferred school (s) to discuss place availability in the requested year group (s). You can then complete the application form and return it directly to your preference school (s).

PRIMARY SCHOOL In-Year Common Application Form 

Following the update to the School Admissions Code 2021 all primary schools in Halton have now agreed a new Fair Access Protocol. ​Please see the ​Primary In-Year Fair Access Protocol​ for information regarding this process.

Requests to educate outside of normal age group
