Frequently Asked Questions

 

Q. Can I apply for a school place and view my child's allocated school online?

A. Yes. After you have registered your child at Our Lady’s by speaking to the school office, you will then be sent details of how to apply online with your child's application form from Wigan Local Authority. You'll need to register your details on the School Admissions Portal and then you will be able to access the website and view your child's allocated school on the day the notification letters are sent.

Q. What happens if I don't apply for a school place for my child?

A. You are strongly advised to apply. If you don't apply for a place then your child will be offered a place at the nearest appropriate school which has places left after all other applications have been dealt with.
