Parents of children who are already of secondary school age and wish to transfer to Ashton on Mersey School must apply directly to the school, by completing the In-Year Transfer Application form below.

Please note this application form is for in year transfer admission for Years 7 to 11 only.  For applications to the Sixth Form, please contact Mrs G. Fox, Sixth Form Manager on 973 1179 *2601.

Please read and familiarise yourself with the following information before making your application:

  • Ashton on Mersey School is currently full in all year groups and oversubscribed (i.e. there is a waiting list of applicants for each year group).
  • Make sure you provide all the information requested on the form and that this information is factually correct. Any offer made will be withdrawn if it is found that parents or carers have given false information.
  • Applications for an in-year transfer will normally be processed within 10 school days of receipt.
  • The school will consider applications in strict accordance with the relevant published admissions policy.
  • Waiting lists are ranked in accordance with our published over subscription criteria (details of which can be found in our admissions policy).
  • Where no place is available, you will be notified of this in writing and your child’s name will be added to the waiting list for the relevant year group (that is, the one which corresponds to their date of birth, at the time of your application).
  • Where a vacancy is available, and your child’s name is first on the waiting list for the relevant year group, you will be contacted by letter (to your home address) offering your child a place.

Once you have read the above information, and are satisfied with our Admissions Policy, please download our In-Year Transfer Application Form.
