Stapeley Broad Lane CofE Primary School


As an academy, the Governing Body is responsible for admissions to our school.

Reception Class Admissions 2023

If you wish to apply for a place in our Reception Class, please contact Cheshire East council for an admissions form or you can complete one online. These are available from 1st September. This should be completed and returned before 15th January for a place to start in the following September.

We are always delighted to show prospective parents and pupils around school once the admissions process is open. Please contact the school office to arrange a convenient time for this. We usually offer single family visits from the middle of September to allow the school (and particularly our new Reception pupils) to settle back into school-routines.


Applications for places in our school are dealt with through Cheshire East School Admissions.  Further information on the admissions process, including links to relevant booklets can be found here.
