There are many reasons which might influence a parent’s decision including a school’s location, the size of the school, Ofsted reports, friendship groups, academic results, faith links and even whether or not a parent went to the same school. Every school is different and choosing the right school for your child is really important. The best way to make that choice is to go and visit the school with your child.
We have good links to all the Secondary Schools in Lancaster and have had children go to them all and succeed wherever they are. Different schools have different application processes and it is worth contacting them or researching online to find out exact details and deadlines. The attached booklets will also help you in making this decision.
There is a copy of the paper application should you need it however the vast majority of parents apply online at https://www.lancashire.gov.uk/children-education-families/schools/apply-for-a-school-place/starting-secondary-school/?page=1
If you would like to talk to Mr MacKinnon about school choices then please make an appointment to do so. For many parents these decisions are made before Year 6 and conversations with parents from Year 4 up are quite usual.
