Year 6 Admissions - School Introduction

Welcome to Fred Longworth High School and thank you for your interest in our school. In normal times, we would have been holding an Open Evening around now, welcoming you in to see what our school has to offer. The current pandemic prevents us from doing this, so we have the next best thing – a virtual tour of our school with one of our students.

We hope that you enjoy the video and that you find the accompanying FAQs useful. If you still have questions about what we have to offer, you are welcome to email whalleyj@flhs.wigan.sch.uk for the answers.

School Tour

We are unable to welcome you to our school for an Open Evening this year so we have the next best thing – a virtual tour of our school with one of our students.

 

If you decide that you want your child to come to Fred Longworth, you will need to apply online via the Wigan portal. You must have chosen your 3 school preferences by Saturday 31 October 2020. Use the link below to apply for a place:

All details and advice on applying for a school place are within the Wigan Council Booklet which you can find on the Wigan Council website but also by clicking on the link below:

This booklet also gives details of our over-subscription criteria. We are an over-subscribed school, and many of the questions we usually receive at this time of year are based on parental worries about whether their child will be likely to gain a place. Do contact us on the whalleyj@flhs.wigan.sch.uk address if you have any concerns. In the meantime, please see the attached letter about the admissions procedure which should answer at least some of your questions.
