Admission Arrangements

Open Days 2019-2020

Parents are most welcome to come and look round school, get a feel for us and ask questions in order to help you with your decision in what schools to apply for. We hold Open Days in the autumn term for prospective parents of children joining Reception to come and look round school:

Thursday 11th October  9:30 am

Thursday 1st November 9:30 am

Thursday 8th November 2:30 pm

Wednesday 5th December 9:30 am

Friday 4th January 9:30 am

Please contact the school and let us know if you would like to attend one of these sessions.

Admission into Reception

Starting school and admission into our Reception  is for the September before your child’s 5th birthday. Our Published Admissions Number (PAN) into our Reception class is 60.   For details of how places are allocated, see our admissions policy.

To apply for Park Road, even though we are an academy, you need to fill in Trafford’s coordinated admissions form as they do our Reception admissions on our behalf.   You should find this on their website or contact them directly. Complete your application with Trafford Local Authority either online or hard copy by the set date (usually 15th January). The local authority will inform you of the decision in April when they allocate all school places. 

Please be aware that we are normally heavily over subscribed. If you are unsuccessful you do have the right to appeal this decision.  Before considering an appeal, however, you are invited to talk to the headteacher so that you can gain an understanding of how places have been allocated.  To view our Appeals Timetable, click here.
