The Governors’ policy is to give priority to children from committed Christian families. The number of intended admissions each year to Year 7 is 300. All pupils are admitted without reference to ability or aptitude except in the case of applicants to the sixth form to take Level 3 courses.
The School was over-subscribed for admission in September 2020. The ‘cut-off’ point score was zero, this was out of a maximum total of 540 in 2020 (applicants on zero points were prioritised in order of those living closest to the school).
Full details can be found on the Canon Slade Application form for 2021 and the Admissions policy in the links on the right of this page.
In the event of any queries regarding the admissions process, including the availability of places in Years 8-11, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
RIGHT OF APPEAL
In the event of parents being refused a place for their child, they have the right of appeal to an independent panel. Information explaining how to appeal will be sent via the Local Authority should your application be unsuccessful. Repeat applications within the same academic year will not be considered unless there has been a significant change in circumstances.
It is the parents’ responsibility, when all sections have been completed, to send the form and any accompanying verifications to:
Canon Slade School, Bradshaw Brow,
BOLTON, BL2 3BP
Alternatively, applications may be handed in to the main school reception.
Please note emailed/scanned applications are not accepted.
