ONLINE applications - the quick, easy and secure way to apply for secondary school places for September 2021 - are about to close on Lancashire County Council's website.
The online application system is open until 11:59pm on Saturday (October 31) for secondary schools.
It is important to remember that parents of all children starting school need to submit an application form, even if the child has an older brother or sister at the school concerned.
For more information, go to www.lancashire.gov.uk/schools, where you'll find all the information you need. From Monday to Friday, from 8am to 5pm, parents can also call 0300 123 6707.
Parents whose children attend Lancashire primary schools or academies, but live in another local authority area, must apply via the local authority where they live.
