Dear parents and carers,

St. Anne's Catholic Primary School is a Voluntary Aided Roman Catholic School. It serves the parishes of St Anne's, Ormskirk and St. Mary's, Aughton in the Archdiocese of Liverpool. The school is maintained by Lancashire Local Authority as a voluntary aided school.  The school's Governing Body, appointed by Douai Abbey, is the admissions authority and is responsible for taking decisions on applications for admissions. 

The appeals process is managed by Lancashire County Council.  Please click on the following link for more information.

Please do not hesitate to contact St Anne's if you would like to visit school.  Choosing your child's school is an important decision and we are here to help you in anyway we can.  For the school year commencing September 2024, the Governing Body has set its planned admission number at 60.  

School admissions are now open for children due to start primary school in September 2024.   We would recommend you apply as soon as you have visited school.  You will need to apply at:
