Admission Arrangements

St Philip’s Church of England Primary School is a Voluntary Aided school. Admissions to an Aided School are the responsibility of the Governors, in agreement with the Diocesan Board of Education and the Local Authority. The Governing Body is the admissions authority for the school, and the school is required to act in accordance with the School Admissions Code. The admission process, including appeals in situations where admission has not been possible, is co-ordinated by Manchester City Council (the Local Authority) and the school liaises with the Local Authority on admissions issues.

Please note that if you wish to apply for a place in St Philip’s based on criteria 4 and 5 on the Admissions Policy you will need to complete the supplementary form which can be found at the bottom of the relevant Admissions Policy to the right.

If you have any queries regarding admission arrangements including Reception through to Year 6 please contact Manchester Council School Admissions department using the link to the right.
