Admissions - Reception

Article Index


You will hear from Liverpool City Council (or your local authority) on Tuesday 19th April which school your child has been allocated for Reception in September 2022. If you have any questions after that date you should email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will try to respond to you within two working days. However, please note that school is closed until Monday 25th April so it may not be possible to answer your query until that time.

We are aware that many families will not receive a place in their preferred schools due to the number of applications and we understand the frustration and disappointment that this may cause. This year 584 families listed Liverpool College as one of their preferences and as there are only 84 places in Reception we have carefully followed the over subscription criteria of the Admission Policy. The places allocated  in line with the oversubscription criteria are as follows:

Education Health Care Plan = 1

Free School Meal places = 5

Previously looked after or looked after children = 9

Children of staff members who have been employed at Liverpool College for minimum of two years = 2

Children who have a brother or sister at Liverpool College = 50

This left 17 places to be allocated using random allocation. At the time of the random allocation there were 517 children on the list. 9 places were randomly allocated to children who live within 2 miles of the school and 8 places to children from any distance both within and outside a 2 mile distance. 

We hope that this explanation is helpful but if you have any questions please get in touch. Should you wish to submit an Admission Appeal to an Independent Panel please email us to request paperwork which will be sent out when school reopens.

We produced an Admissions Information Booklet which we hope will answer many of your questions. Please click here to download.  If you would like a paper copy please contact us to request one.
