This is an important time for families as decisions are being made around the education of your child in 2024.

How to choose a school

Parents and carers are encouraged to go and see for yourself all the opportunities Knowsley schools can offer.

Head teachers and staff will be delighted to meet with you and show how pupils are benefiting from the high standards of teaching and learning delivered across the primary curriculum. All staff wish to work in partnership with you and provide your child with the best possible education. Our schools are committed to helping children reach their potential, whatever their race, sex, religion or disability.

Secondary schools will be hosting open events and information on these can be found in the admission booklet.
