Admission Arrangements

School Admissions 

Our school admissions are part of a co-ordinated system of allocating school places across St Helens. The admissions process and allocation of places is managed by the Admissions Section at St Helens Council.

Below you will find more information about how to apply for a place at our school. There are also two important documents attached with more information.

Make Queen's Park your first choice!

Children usually join the Reception class in the September following their fourth birthday.

Again, application forms/online system are released by the Local Authority, usually in the October before your child is eligible to start.

To help parents with the process and to ensure that deadlines are not missed, school operates a 'Waiting List' system, whereby we will take your details and when the appropriate application round opens, we will contact you with the relevant information.

Appeal Procedure 

Where parents are unsuccessful in applying for a school place, the decision letter will give reasons why the application was refused (in light of the published admission arrangements) notification of the right of appeal, including details of how, and to whom, to make an appeal and where to obtain further information. 
Parents should be aware that legislation limits infant class sizes to 30 pupils and restricts the grounds upon which an appeal can be upheld. They would have to show that the decision was one which in the circumstances no reasonable admission authority would have made, or that their child would have been offered a place if the admission arrangements had been properly implemented.
