APPLICATIONS for secondary school places in Lancashire need to be in by Saturday, October 31.
The online application system is open until 11.59pm for all those applying for a secondary school place.
Online via Lancashire County Council's website is the quickest and easiest way to apply for a place.
It is important to remember that parents need to submit an application form for all children starting school, especially if the child has an older brother or sister at the school concerned.
If you’re applying for a place for a child starting primary school, the closing date is Friday, January 15, but making sure your application is in early gives you extra time in case there are any changes.
