Admission Arrangements 2019

De La Salle School is a Catholic School under the trusteeship of the De La Salle Brothers. It is maintained by St Helens Council.  As a Voluntary Aided School, the Governing Body is the Admissions Authority and is responsible for taking decisions on applications for admissions.  The co-ordination of admissions arrangements is undertaken by the Local Authority.  For the school’s year commencing September 2019, the Governing Body has set its admissions number at 240.

Admissions to the school will be determined by the Governing Body. Parents must complete their home Local Authority Preference Form or apply online via the relevant Local Authority website.  If you are a St Helens resident and wish to have your application considered against the School's faith/denomination criteria then you should complete the faith questions on St Helens Preference Form. Other local authority residents should forward the documentary evidence that is requested to the School.

All preferences listed will be considered on an equal basis and, where there are more applications than the number of places available, the following set of oversubscription criteria will be applied:
