For September 2023 offers will be confirmed online only for all those who apply on Lancashire's online system (this was around 95% of applicants the previous year). For those who do not receive a first preference offer, links to reserve list and appeal forms will be available.

Lancashire's online system will go live on the morning when places are released (17th April 2023) and will allow online applicants to view their school offer. Please be patient as around 13,000 applicants may be trying to access information.



If you are applying for a primary school place at Sacred Heart based on faith commitment, you must return the supplementary information form along with relevant documents to the school. This means that the school application will be done online with Lancashire County Council, but the supporting documents will be given directly to the school. 

Copies of the supplementary form are below. 

Please remember that you must apply for a school place even if your Reception child already has a sibling attending your chosen school. 


If you are interested in applying for a school place at Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School for your child starting school in September 2023, you would be most welcome to join us at our school open evening on 19th October 2022. Times of the event will be confirmed shortly but the event will be after our pupils have left for the day.


If you do require any information in regards to admissions please contact Mrs S Aspden in the school office on 01772726937 or 

If you require any information in regard to admissions as a paper copy, this can be supplied free of charge upon request.
