Lancashire secondary school places: deadline for applications fast approaching
Parents applying for secondary school places in Lancashire for the 2022/23 academic year have until next Monday to get their applications in.
Applications need to be in by 11:59pm on Monday October 31, with the simplest way to apply being online via the county council's website.
County Councillor Jayne Rear, cabinet member for education and skills, said: "Avoid giving yourself a fright this Halloween and get your secondary school place application in before the deadline.
"Please remember that everyone must apply for a place – having a child already at a school does not mean their sibling will automatically get a place.
"Applying online is the quickest and easiest way to apply so if you haven’t done it, please do so as soon as possible."
Applications for primary schools do not close until January 15 2023.
