Year 7 Entry 2021

Our normal schedule of Open Events has obviously been affected by the corona virus and school being closed. It is very unlikely that the Open Evening scheduled for June 2020 will take place and we do not yet know whether the one scheduled for September will be able to go ahead. With regard to the Banding Test which was scheduled for 10th October we hope that it will be able to take place but until more guidance is issued we cannot confirm arrangements.  Please keep in touch either by looking at the website or by email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and we will post announcements here as soon as possible. This is a frustrating situation for everybody and we appreciate your patience.

 In Year Applications

In Year applications are when parents apply for their child to transfer from one school to another in year groups other than Reception, Year 7 and Sixth Form.  

The procedures are as follows:

Years 1,2,3,4,5 & 6 : There are currently no places avaiable in any of these year groups but you can complete a 2019-2020 Waiting List Registration Form so that your child can be added to the waiting list for the current academic year (2019-2020). Each waiting list only lasts for the duration of the academic year. If you wish to add your child to the waiting list for the next academic year (2020-2021) you will need to complete the 2020 - 2021 Waiting List Registratoin Form which can be downloaded here

Years 8, 9 & 10 2018-2019 :  If your child is currently on roll at a Liverpool School you should ask their school to contact Liverpool College to discuss a potential transfer.  It is very rare that there will be a place available and if we are unable to offer a place you will be able to add your child to our waiting list.  If you have recently moved into the city or transport to the child's current school is no longer practical you should make an application at www.liverpoool.gov.uk/admissions  under the In Year Transfers tab.  The Local Authority will coordinate information regarding the in year transfer.
