Admission policy

Thank you for showing an interest in your child being admitted to our school. Please come and visit – come and see our happy children learning and exploring together. Get your foot through the door and you will see all that Astbury School has to offer you and your child. We currently have spaces available in almost all of our year groups, due to our latest OFSTED inspection. The inspection was in January 2017 and all actions have been and are being addressed. Please call the school office on 01260 272528 or email to make an appointment to meet the Head teacher and have a tour of the school.

We welcome all and you do not need to have any religion or attend church to be part of our Astbury family – even though the current admission policy emphasises this – changes are being made to our admission policy for Sept 2020 which reflect Church of England views that “schools are established primary for the communities they are located in.  They are inclusive and serve equally those of other faiths and those with no faith.”

Astbury School has a single intake into the Reception class each year. Children must have reached four years old prior to the 1st September in the year of admission.

Applications for older children to be admitted into other classes will be considered individually and are dependent upon space being available. Please contact the school office.

The Head teacher will explain our admission policy to you in full detail and if you are able to visit, will take you on a tour of the school. This is your opportunity to ask questions or raise any concerns you may have regarding the educational provision for your child. You will be able to observe pupils in the course of their school day.

After your visit, you need to apply for a place through Cheshire East at

Visits are not a compulsory part of the admissions process and will not effect decisions on whether a place can be offered at our school.

For full details please see our Admissions policy 2020_2021 and the Ecclesiastical Parish Boundary Map.
