Currently, pupils normally transfer to Broomfields Junior School from Cobbs Infant and Nursery School having reached their seventh birthday by the 31st August. However, the policy has changed for pupils applying for entry in September 2025. All pupils for September 2025 will have to apply using an application form. Further details regarding this will be provided on this page before the end of this school year.

Moving schools / In-year transfer

In-year transfer applications are those applications requesting a transfer from one school to another outside of the normal admissions rounds, for example when a family moves address part way through a school year. 

If your request for an in-year transfer is not because of a change of address or relocation from overseas, you are strongly advised to think carefully before you apply. Problems your child may be experiencing may not go away simply as a result of a change of school.

Once you have spoken with the school admissions team, the Headteacher or a member of the Senior Leadership Team at our school will be happy to arrange a visit for you and your child to come and look around. 


The Admissions Authority for the school is The Challenge Academy Trust and  Warrington Borough Council. Admissions information can be accessed by using the link below:

If your child is refused a place at any school for which you have expressed a preference, you have the right to appeal against the decision to an Independent School Appeals Panel.  This applies where the school is community controlled, a faith school or an academy.  Please click below for more information.  The link also details the timetable for school appeals.
