School Admissions

We would love you to visit our school at a time that suits you. At Burscough Bridge Methodist School every day is an open day where you can tour the school and immerse yourself in our school life.  We feel this is the best way for you to get a real flavour of what we do and enables you to see all our children ‘letting their light shine’.

Starting School can be an exciting new adventure for your children.  In this section we have put together some tips and advice on the school admissions process and what to expect in  the first few weeks of starting school.  Children start school at the beginning of the academic year in which they have their fifth birthday.  Applications are submitted earlier the same year in January, through Lancashire County Council.

You will be asked to select three schools in order of preference, it is always helpful to add details in the comment section to support your choices.  The school places are allocated in April.

We will contact you with full details of our Link sessions and parents meeting which take place in the summer term.  These sessions will give you more information for example our uniform requirements, lunch menus and any other details you may need prior to September. Link also gives your child/ren the opportunity to meet their teacher and start to make new friends.  We look forward to welcoming you into our School Family.  

School Application

All applications are done electronically on the Lancashire County Council website.  The application deadline for next years school intake is January and places will be announced  in April.  Please click the link for the exact dates and application details.
