How to Apply

Admissions for Year 7

The Governing Body is the Admitting Authority for Bridgewater High School and have appointed Warrington Borough Council  to administer the Admissions process for current Y6 pupils who wish to apply to join us in 2018-19.  Guidance to the Admissions process can be found by following the links on this page.

This guidance sets out the arrangements for the transfer of children to secondary schools for the academic year beginning in September 2018 and gives details of how places are allocated. The law gives parents the right to express a preference for which school they wish their child to attend. It is very important that you understand that this is not the same as being able to choose a school. Admission to Bridgewater High School depends on meeting the criteria that are explained in the guidance.

The guidance also gives information on the admissions process for in-year transfers.

In addition, we produce a prospectus which contains a great deal of information about our school (see below).

The Admissions Team at the Children and Young People’s Services Directorate, New Town House, is there to help and advise you. Please do not be afraid to contact them with any concerns that you might have about admissions (see below also).

Finally, please make sure that you complete and return your application form before the deadline date, 31st October, 2017 as late applications will normally only be considered after the main allocation of places is finished. If you do not return your form, it will reduce Warrington’s ability to meet your preferences.
