Where the school receives more applications than places available, the following admission criteria will be applied once places have first been allocated to pupils who have a statement of special educational needs which names the school:

  1. Children in Public Care
  2. Children with brothers or sisters who will be attending the school in the 2012-13 school year.
  3. Other children living in Ashton-in-Makerfield, and Garswood and North Ashton in              St. Helens.
  4. Other children living nearest to the school

          Tie-breaker

Where there are more children in one particular criterion that the number of places available, places will be allocated to the children who live nearest to the school. The distance will be measured in a straight line from the child's home address to a central point at the school using a Geographical Information System (GIS) which is based on ordnance survey.
