Admission Arrangements

Click here to Apply Online

Carr Mill is a very popular school with very high academic standards. There are 307 children on roll as at September 2022.

Admissions will be made according to St. Helens’ Admissions Policy. A copy of the policy and the admissions form can be obtained from the school office, or alternatively click on the link below.

Parents are always welcome to visit school, to look around and to ask questions about the way we do things here. In our security conscious world it is better to telephone first to make an appointment in order that the Head Teacher or another member of staff may make themselves available to guide you around school.

In Year Transfers
