If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.
Admissions arrangements for Reception
All admissions information, process and deadlines for reception aged children are organised by Liverpool City Council. You can access that information either by using the hyperlink below or opening up the document at the bottom of the page.
At Knotty Ash we have 30 places per year group. The Local Authority guidance gives information if we are oversubscribed.
Knotty Ash hosts a Deaf Resource Base (DRB) which is an integral part of the school. We are therefore able to accommodate severely/profoundly deaf children in our inclusive mainstream school with specialist teachers of the deaf. The process of admission to the DRB is coordinated by Liverpool Local Authority Sensory Service. The operational lead is:
Ms Chris Haigh

We are happy to show families around our school but please be aware that this is no guarantee of a place being offered.
The school are able to offer a place for your child from the day after their third birthday. Applications are made directly to the school. Parents and Carers can submit an application anytime before their child's third birthday. The earlier the better!
There is a morning session and an afternoon session; each can accommodate up to 26 pupils
Morning session 8.30am-11.30am
Afternoon session 12.30pm-3.30pm
We also offer 30 hour (full day) provision for children who are eligible.
