Admissions to the school are the responsibility of the Governors. The Admissions Committee acts on behalf of the governing body. The agreement between the Governors and the Diocese of Manchester concerning admissions lays down the procedures to be followed. The Planned Admissions Number is 240.

We run a number of ‘Trinity Tours’ in June, September and October which we strongly encourage parents and carers to attend. This is an excellent opportunity to see the school at work. At the end of the tour, there will be an opportunity to go through the Supplementary Application Form and answer any questions you may have. The forms should be returned to Trinity as soon as they are completed and no later than 31st October for those applying for places the following September.

How are places allocated?

The Governors’ first priority will be given to children who are or have been in public care and children who have an Education and Health Care Plan in which Trinity is named. In the event of oversubscription, the remaining places will be allocated by the use of the following criteria, applied in order. Of the 240 admitted each year:

a. 130 shall be children who are, or one of whose parents/ carers are in regular attendance at an Anglican Church;

b. 70 shall be children who are, or one of whose parents/ carers are in regular attendance at a church of another Christian denomination, being any church in membership of or sharing the statement of belief of Churches Together in England;

c. 40 shall be children who are, and/or one of whose parents/carers are, members of other faiths and in regular attendance at a place of worship within the faith tradition.

The Governors’ Admissions Committee considers all information contained within the Supplementary Application Form, so it is important to give as much detail as possible.
