Hawes Side Academy currently accepts 90 pupils into every year group from reception (Foundation Stage) to Year 6.


We understand that choosing the right school for your child is an incredibly important decision and we aim to provide all the information we can to help you do this.


Starting school in September 2022


If your child's 4th birthday falls between 1st September 2021 and 31st August 2022, you need to apply for a primary school reception place, to start in September 2022. 

You must apply using the link below if you live in Blackpool ( if you pay your council tax to Blackpool or receive housing benefit from Blackpool Council ).


Applications will close 15 January 2022


You can apply for a place by clicking here


We are currently looking at ways for you to 'visit' our wonderful school. In the current situation this will most likely be a virtual visit. More information will follow.



Once your application has been submitted and processed, you will receive an offer of a primary school place on the primary National Offer Day in 2022 from Blackpool council.  The academy will be advised of the allocations and we will then contact you to detail the next steps in joining our school.


If your child is moving school:

Applications for entry to the academy from another school (known as in-year applications) should be made directly to Blackpool Council via the school admission team (see contact details below). Only when a space becomes available can we offer a place according to our criteria. In line with Blackpool policy we can only accept admissions from other Blackpool primary schools at the start of a new term.


If your application is unsuccessful:

Should you be unsuccessful in obtaining a place at Hawes Side Academy and wish to consider an appeal, please contact the School admissions team at Blackpool Council in the first instance.
