ADMISSION TO YEAR 7

Choosing the right school for your son/daughter is an important decision and at Queen’s Park High School we strive to give you as much insight and information as possible to help you with this process.

We organise an Open Evening in September along with Open Sessions throughout the year to enable families of Year 5 and 6 students to visit the school prior to making their Secondary School preference selection in October.

All applications for admission to Queen’s Park High School for children transferring from primary school into Year 7 are co-ordinated centrally by the Local Authority. The closing date for applications to gain a place for September 2018 is 31 October 2017.

We welcome applications from all children from our Feeder Primary Schools which includes Belgrave, Chester Blue Coat, Dodleston, Eccleston, Hoole, Lache, Overleigh St Marys and The Arches.   We also welcome applications from children currently attending Primary schools outside of our catchment area.
