Applying for secondary schools in 2023
If your child will turn 11 between 1 September 2022 and 31 August 2023, he or she will transfer to secondary school at the start of the new school year in September 2023.
The online application process is now open.
The Admissions Portal may ask for your child’s Unique Identification Number (UID) when you apply, you can ask your child’s primary school for this number (Wigan Primary Schools Only). You can still apply without the UID. If the Admissions Portal does not ask for your UID it means that your child’s details have automatically been matched to their record and you won’t need to enter it.
If you need any help using the online service, please contact the School Organisation Team on 01942 489013.
It is very important that you read the Applying for a place at secondary school 2023/24 booklet before making your application as it contains important information about the allocation process.
The closing date for applications is 31 October 2022.

The closing date for applications is 15 January 2023.
