Pupils Admissions

Admissions for 2019 will be made via the Local Authority website. Dates for application will be communicated in September 2018. All other Year groups are currently full.

For information on pupil admissions to the school please refer to the Secondary Admissions Booklet by visiting the Lancashire Secondary Admissions website.

School Charging

In accordance with the law, the school does not charge for admission, education which takes place during school hours, education which forms part of the National Curriculum, materials, books and equipment or visits taking place in school time.

Charges can be made for visits or activities during school holidays, totally outside school hours, or more than 50% of the time outside school hours. We do not currently charge for music lessons.  The restrictions that are placed upon charging for school activities do not prevent the school from asking for voluntary contributions.  Without these voluntary contributions many activities that are the norm for this school may not be possible.


You do have a right to appeal to an independent panel for a place at our school and can find an appeals form and advice notes below. The form should be completed and returned to Mrs Wilson at the school (

Our admission criteria can be found in our admissions policy.

Bulk Appeals deadline for September 2019 entry to Bowland High School is noon Friday 5th April 2019. The appeals hearing will be held in June 2019.
