The appeals panel will be independent of the academy. The arrangements for appeals will be in line with the Code of Practice on School Admission Appeals published by the Department for Education. The determination of the appeals panel will be made in accordance with the Code of Practice on School Admission Appeals and is binding on all parties.

A College of Schools

Pre Prep – Reception to Year 2

Prep – Year 3 to Year 6

Middle School – Year 7 – Year 9

Upper School – Year 10 – Year 11

Sixth Form – Year 12 – Year 13

Liverpool College converted to Academy Status in September 2013.  We educate children from 4 – 18 years old and welcome applications from parents both within and outside the Liverpool area.

The school is heavily oversubscribed and admission to year groups other than Reception, Year 7 and Year 12 is rare although we do hold “In Year Application” waiting lists for Years 1,2,3,4,5,6,8,9 & 10. 


A variation to our admissions policy for September 2021 has been approved.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting public health protective measures, we have removed the requirement for applicants for Year 7 entry in September 2021 to sit a fair banding test. Section 5 (Year 7 Arrangements) of the Admission Policy for September 2021 entry has therefore been updated to reflect this necessary change in arrangements.
