Admissions at St George's

Choosing the right school for your child and your family is an important and exciting time.  We recognise this at St George’s and pride ourselves on the various, extensive open events, and transition events that we plan throughout the year.  Due to unprecedented circumstances, we have amended our open day events in line with Covid-19 guidance and thank you in advance for your support and understanding. This event is planned for Saturday 7th November and is now a strictly bookings only event.  This will ensure that we can support our families in viewing the setting whilst adhering to social distancing and Covid-19 guidance. 

We request that all attendees arrive on time and queue at the top of the car park by the green gates and wait to be collected - this will be signposted on the day.  Adults are asked to wear masks at all times unless seated.  Track and trace measures and hand sanitizers will be in place.  There will be a maximum of 6 adults and 6 children in each session.  There will be a short informative presentation about our school and the application process, followed by a guided tour and the opportunity to ask questions.  Each session will last for a maximum of 40 minutes in total so that additional hygiene measures can be implemented between groups.

St George's admits children from Foundation 1 (children aged 3 years in September of the year of their admission) to Year 6.

Govenring Body manages admission for the nursery.  Details on how we manage this are detailed in the nursery (Foundation 1) admissions page.

Our admission arrangements from Foundation 2 are managed by Wirral Council who run a co-orodinated primary admission scheme across the whole council.  Details of the admission process and policies can be found at Wirral Council's admissions portal.  The admissions portal opens in September the year before your child starts (when they are at nursery) and closes in early January.

Information on the catchment area for Wirral Primary schools can be found at:

Admissions are allocated according to a criteria of:

  • Looked After Children and previously Looked After Children.
  • Parents of the children who live ‘in zone’ and already have older brothers or sisters at the school living in the same household at the time of the start date. 
  • Parents of pupils who live ‘in zone’ and have a valid medical reason. You must provide details on the online or paper preference form and this may be checked by a medical officer of the Health Authority. A letter in support from a senior health care professional will be required as evidence.  You need to make it clear why only this school is appropriate for your child’s medical needs.
  • Parents of pupils who live ‘in zone’ and nearest to the school. The Authority measures distances from home to the nearest school pedestrian gate using a computerised mapping system using the shortest road route,unless it is possible to use a footpath which the Authority considers to be a safe walking route. As a general guide we will treat routes with no pavements and no street lighting as unsafe for children.  

If children live outside the school’s catchment area and if places are still available, places will be allocated in accordance with the following criteria:

  • To children who already have older brothers or sisters at the school, living in the same household, when they are due to start. If there are more children with older brothers or sisters at the school than there are places available, priority will be given to children with the youngest brothers or sisters at the school. 
  • To children who have valid medical reasons for going to the school. You must give details on the preference form and this may be checked by a medical officer of the Health Authority.  A letter in support from a senior health care professional will be required as evidence. You need to make it clear why this school is appropriate for your child’s medical needs.
  • To pupils who live nearest to the school. The Authority measures distances from home to the nearest school pedestrian gate using a computerised mapping system using the shortest road route, unless it is possible to use a footpath which the Authority considers to be a safe walking route. As a general guide we will treat routes with no pavements and no street lighting as unsafe for children.

We are a popular school and are frequently oversubscribed. To support parents with the admission process we hold family open evening sessions in the Autumn Term.  Please visit our school calendar for this year's dates.  They are published in September every year.
