School admission arrangements have been determined for September 2021 for Bury MBC community and voluntary controlled schools.

What is the admission criteria?

For community and voluntary controlled schools we allocate places in the following order:

  1. Children with a Statement of Special Educational Needs which names the school;
  2. Children in the Care of a Local Authority;
  3. Children with a medical or psychological reason for attending that school;
  4. Children with elder siblings attending the school;
  5. Children with church affiliation, only applicable to Voluntary Controlled Church of England Schools;
  6. Proximity - nearness to the school. 

How do I apply for a place, when can I do it and when do I find out about my place?

For both primary and secondary school places you have to apply through your home Local Authority so if you live in Bury and want a school place within Bury or another Local Authority you must apply through us. If you live in another borough and want a school place at a Bury school you must apply through your home local authority. You will be able to apply online for a school place for both primary and secondary school places. Please see flyer below for information.
