Admission to a secondary school is an important step for a young person and potentially an anxious time for parents and carers. The academy wishes to ensure that each child can be offered a suitable education to meet their needs, without prejudicing the welfare and education of other children in the school.
Admission Arrangements 2023-2024 (For entry from September 2023)
The Local Authority (LA) co-ordinate the admissions for all Knowsley Secondary Schools. Parents must apply to their home authority (the authority where they live).

Currently Halewood Academy operates a waiting list for year groups for children whose initial application is refused. Should places become available later in the year then the list will be reviewed. Length of time on the list does not give additional priority; the school's normal admissions priorities will be followed.
If a child is refused a place then parents/carers have the right to appeal.
