Admissions

For September 2018 entry into Year 7*

The Laurus Trust is the Admissions Authority for Laurus Cheadle Hulme.  The co-ordination and administration of student admissions for entry is undertaken by the Local Authority.

You will need to apply using the Local Authority form for the area in which you reside.  If your child was born between 1st September 2006 and 31st August 2007 you need to apply for a secondary school place for the school year beginning September 2018 by 31st October 2017.  If you live in Stockport you must apply using the on-line system available from 15th August 2017.  Please click here to access the on-line admissions form.

As Laurus Cheadle Hulme is a brand new school, opening one year group at a time, there is currently no availability for mid-year admissions.

*Offers will be made on 1st March 2018 by the Local Authority. If we have not entered into a funding agreement with the Secretary of State opening the school by that date, they will be conditional offers and will be confirmed once we have a signed funding agreement.
