Parents are being reminded to apply for their child’s secondary school by the end of the month.

Applications need to be made online by 11.59pm on Sunday, October 31 for all those applying for a secondary school place.

The quickest and easiest way to apply is online via the county council's website.

It is important to remember that parents need to submit an application form for all children starting school, even if the child has an older brother or sister at the school concerned.

If you're applying for a place for a child starting primary school, the closing date is Saturday 15 January 2022, but making sure your application is in early gives you extra time in case there are any changes.

Parents whose children wish to attend Lancashire schools or academies, but live in another local authority area, should apply via the local authority where they live.
