Central Lancaster High School is increasing in popularity. Parents should be reminded, therefore, that as the school now receives more applications than it has places, despite the 'Equal' Preference Scheme, placing the school in first position is essential if parents wish to be sure of a place.

This school is a state comprehensive school and as such, all admissions are dealt with by Lancashire County Council's Pupil Access Team. The school does not allocate its own student places. Full details are provided in the booklet entitled 'Secondary School Admission in Lancashire', which is normally distributed to parents via the primary school. Priority is given to brothers and sisters of children already attending the school and to those living within the local community, based on geographical priority areas. The Authority may agree to exceptional reasons for admission. In year admissions are managed by the school. 

Parents of prospective pupils are encouraged to attend the Open Evening's in September or to visit the school in session by prior arrangements to see the school at work.
