Admissions to The Ferns Primary Academy School are controlled by Northern Education Trust/Bolton Local Authority who will consider all applicants without reference to the parents preference ranking for a school.

Any pupil has the right to a place at any one of the schools for which Northern Education Trust and /or Bolton Local Authority is the admission authority provided that the demand for places at a school does not exceed the admission number for that school. Initially places will be allocated to children with a statement of special educational needs which names a particular school in part 4 of that statement.
Where demand for a school exceeds the number of places available Northern Education Trust needs to allocate places on the basis of a fair and objective method.
