Parents/Carers are not required to complete any additional forms for entry into Year 7 (September 2020).  Applications are to be made via your own Local Authority.  The deadline for returning your Common Application Form (CAF) to your Local Authority was 31st October 2020.

If you have missed this deadline, please contact the School Admissions Department at the Local Authority in which you reside.

Offers for a Year 7 September 2021 entry will go out on 1st March. If, on that date, you are not successful in securing a place for your child, you can do two things:

  1. Request to go on the waiting list for Ashton on Mersey School

Requests to go onto the waiting list must be made to Trafford School Admissions not directly to the school.

The waiting list is held in strict accordance with our Admissions Policy, until the end of the academic year.

  1. You may also choose to appeal against the decision not to allocate your child a place.

If you are choosing to appeal against the decision, please click here to submit your details.  If you do not have access to email you can request a paper copy by telephone on 0161 972 2970.
