If you wish to move your child from another secondary school within Liverpool to Dixons Croxteth, please speak to your child's current school to instigate an in-year transfer. Your child’s school will then contact the academy to see if a place is available and advise you of the outcome.

If you are new to the city, your child attends a school in another local authority, or your child is returning from home education, please apply via Liverpool City Council Admissions department website or contact them on 0151 233 3006.

Where a place is available, we will look at the waiting list and children will be prioritised in accordance with the oversubscription criteria stated in the Admissions and Appeals Policy (available from the Downloads section below).

If there is no place available, then children will be placed onto a waiting list for that academic year. Parents will need to re-apply in early July to keep their children on the waiting list for the next academic year.
