In-Year Applications

An application can be made for a place for a child to attend St. Peter’s at any time outside the usual admission round. The child will be admitted where there are available places. Applications should be made to Tameside Local Authority by clicking the following link: School Admissions  (Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council)

Please read the information on this web page thoroughly. In-Year applications are co-ordinated by the Local Authority.

Where there are places available but more applications than places, the published oversubscription criteria, as set out in our admissions policy  above, will be applied.

If there are no places available, the child will be added to the waiting list by the Local Authority.

The Local Authority will advise you of the outcome of your application in writing. Should your application be declined, then you have the right of appeal to an independent appeal panel.
