If you live in Lancashire you can include out of area preferences on your online application. However, it is not normally possible to change the order of your preferences for schools after the closing date.

 

Parents 'must' complete the Local Authority application form, stating three preferences. Those who wish their application to this Church school to be considered against the faith criteria 'should' also complete the appropriate questions on the supplementary application form which can be obtained from school. If the we are oversubscribed, a failure to answer these questions may result in your application for a place in  being considered against a lower priority criteria as the Governing Board will have no information upon which to assess the worship attendance.
