Ashurst is a very popular school with 246 children on roll as at September 2015. Our annual published Admission Number for Reception is 30 each year. Application for admission into Reception need to be made direct to St Helens Council. Admissions will be made according to St. Helens’ Admissions Policy. A copy of the policy and the admissions form can be obtained from the school office from the end of September or alternatively click on the link below.

Parents are always welcome to visit school, to look around and to ask questions about the way we do things here. In our security conscious world it is better to telephone first to make an appointment in order that the Head Teacher or another member of staff may make themselves available to guide you around school.

Primary School Places

If your child will be 4 years old between 1st September 2015 and 31st August 2016 you can apply on-line for a primary school place for September 2016. You can list any primary school in St Helens. The deadline for this is 15th January 2016. If you wish to apply for a primary school outside St Helens, you should contact the relevant Local Authority and ask for information about their application procedure.

Why Should I Apply On-Line?

Some of the benefits of applying online are:

  • it’s quick and easy to use
  • you can apply from home 24 hours a day, seven days a week
  • there is no risk of your application being lost in the post
  • you can change your preference up to midnight on the published closing date
  • you will receive an email confirmation that your application has been received
  • the offer of a school place will be sent via email so you do not have to wait for the post

If you wish for your child to transfer to us in-year, you will need to contact the Local Authority in the first instance. Further information and contact details can be found here.
