Balshaw's is a Voluntary Controlled State school. There are no special requirements for entry such as church attendance and the admissions are managed by Lancashire County Council Admissions Authority. All of the information that you require to apply for your child to attend Balshaw's is in the link below. Here you will find information about the catchment area and boundaries and all information you may require about the process of applying for a high school for your child.

The school holds an Open Evening in October for Year 5 and 6 students (please check our website nearer the time for details). However, if you wish to visit the school and look round at other times, please do contact the School Office and they will arrange an appointment for you and your child.
