If you’ve never seen Lowerplace before and would like to know what we can offer your family, please come and take a look around school!

We will be holding open events on Thursday 28th November 2019, at 10am-11am and again at 5pm-6pm.

If you can’t make it on that date, please call the school office on 01706 648174 and we can try to schedule an alternative time for you.

Don’t miss out on your first choice! Apply online by 15th January 2020, by clicking here.

After you have submitted your application, the School Admissions team at Rochdale Council will send you an offer in writing on 15th April 2020.

After this date, the staff at Lowerplace will find out which children have been offered a place here, and will write out to each family to invite you to a special Welcome Event where you can meet your child’s future class teachers, the Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher, and learn more about day-to-day life at Lowerplace, as well as ways you can help prepare your child for school.
