Admission arrangements are the responsibility of Liverpool Education Authority. Parents apply online via their local council when their children are in Year 6 and must be submitted by 31st October. Gateacre has provision for 240 places a year, however, we have increased it to 255 in our current Year 7 (September 2023). When we are oversubscribed, it may not be possible for all applicants to have a place. If there are more applications than places then Liverpool City Council for community secondary schools will make the final decision.
Gateacre School is currently oversubscribed in Years 7 and 8, with a waiting list.
All admissions to Gateacre School are co-ordinated by Liverpool City Council Admissions Team
