In Year Admissions

St Ambrose College is a boys Catholic Grammar school and we are currently oversubscribed and there are no places available for any year of entry.   

All in year applications must be made through the Trafford Council Application Portal: Trafford Portal Link

Should a place become available, we will contact all applicants for that particular year group to arrange an In Year Assessment.  Those applicants who are successful in the assessment will be ranked as per our Oversubscription Criteria – please see our Admissions Policy.  Places do not become available very often and a successful outcome does not guarantee that a place will be offered.  Reassessment of a candidate following an unsuccessful ‘In-Year’ assessment test may only take place a minimum of 12 months after the original assessment.

Please note –  An In-Year Assessment can only be conducted for candidates who are resident in the UK.  Once you have arrived in the UK and have taken up residency please complete the Application Form.

Parents/carers will need to reapply at the start of each academic year if they want their child to be included on the in year register where a place cannot be offered.

Under the terms of Education Act 1998, all parents/carers of candidates refused admission have the right to appeal to an Independent Appeals Panel against any decision made by the School.  The decision of the Independent Appeals Panel is binding on both the School and parents/carers.   Please contact the Admissions Officer if you wish to exercise this right.
