Admissions to our school for children entering our Reception Class (4/5yr olds) to Year 6 (10/11yr olds) are organised by Wigan Council. All admissions to our Nursery classes are organised by ourselves, Britannia Bridge Primary School. Each class, in Reception to Year 6, has a maximum number of 30 children.


Reception Admissions

Reception Class application forms are available, during the autumn and early spring term, with placements being offered in the summer term (prior to commencement in September).

Prospective parents/carers can apply online at Wigan Council Admissions or contact the school office for a paper copy of the application form.
Completed application forms can be returned to the school office. We are always happy to provide advice and support to families.

Nursery (2 year olds)

If you have a two year old or a child that’s about to turn two and are on income related benefits, a low income or your child is in receipt of a disabled living allowance you will be entitled to 15 hours of free childcare per week.

Please call us or come into our school office and we’ll help you to complete the online form to check whether you are eligible. We will then help you to apply for one of our 24 part time places available for children in our Ladybirds (2 year old Nursery) class.

We also have limited availability of paid sessions. The fee is set in accordance with Wigan Council’s agreed rate. This is currently set at £5.20* per hour / £78* per week for 15hrs. If you are interested in a place for your child, please contact the school office to check availability.
