Starting School

St Gregory’s is a truly welcoming, caring and friendly school. We believe it offers children the best possible start to their ‘formal’ education in school with small class sizes and outstanding teachers.

Any parent who is interested in applying for a school place at St Gregory’s should initially contact the head teacher to arrange a visit where parents will be given information about the school and have the opportunity to look at the facilities and talk to the staff. All parents and children are welcome to join us for our celebration assembly which takes place in the school hall every Friday at 3pm.

All school applications must be made through Cheshire East at

Admission and Appeals timetable

Reception children attend several sessions at school in the half term before they are due to start at St Gregory’s. This helps to familiarise them with the school routine and develop friendships. Sometimes school is a completely different environment than a child has experienced before. When your child first starts school they will have a staggered start/finish time, allowing them to get used to the school environment gradually. In addition they will be paired up with a child in Year 6 who will be their ‘buddy’ throughout their first year at St Gregory’s. 


Due to COVID 19 the appeals process may have changed.  Please click the link the find the most up to date information.
