Apply for a place at UCFS

Applications for Reception at University Church Free School (UCFS) should be made through Cheshire West and Chester Local Authority.

Information on the application process is available from the Cheshire West and Chester’s Admissions Office, either by viewing their website at, or by telephoning 0300 123 7039.

The number of places available for admission to the Reception class in the year 2016 will be a maximum of 30 (PAN). UCAT will not place any restrictions on admissions to the Reception class unless the number of children for whom admission is sought exceeds this number. UCAT operates a system of equal preferences under which they consider all preferences equally within the admissions policy. In the circumstance where applications exceed the PAN, as a C of E school UCFS will offer 50% of places (15), to pupils whose parent/s or carer/s are regular worshippers at any Anglican church. The remaining 15 places are classed as open places for pupils of any faith or none. Parents applying for an open place do so knowing that the ethos and collective worship of the school are based on the teachings of the Church of England.

If applying for a Church of England (C of E) place, the Supplementary Information Form (SIF) must also be completed along with the Common Application Form (CAF).
