Opportunities to Visit

I would like to invite you to join us for a tour of William Barcroft Junior School, enabling you to see the offer from Harbour Learning Trust. 

We warmly invite you to come and see what we offer and get the answers to any questions you may have. Just come along (no booking necessary). If you would prefer, contact the office to make an appointment.

We hope that this page gives you all of the information about the admissions process and how you apply to join William Barcroft Junior School, part of the Harbour Learning Trust.

Please feel free to share this information with any of your friends or family who may also be considering their primary school options for next year or the years ahead.


To apply for a place at William Barcroft Junior School, here’s what you need to do:

  1. Check when your child is due to start – click What year is my child in?
  2. Read the Admissions Policy (link below). It is important to take note of the oversubscription criteria as you may have elements which give you priority over others should we receive more applicants than places.
  3. Complete the Council’s admissions form. Primary school admissions closed on 15 January 2023 but reopens on 17 April 2023 and closes again on 19 May 2023.

Any applications received after the closing date will be considered after all of those completed and submitted on time.

What happens next
  • If your application is on time, you will be able to collect your offer on 17 April 2023
  • If you apply by paper form, your offer will be posted on 17 April 2023. If your application is late, The County Council will process it after 29 May 2023 then send you a letter. 
  • Unsuccessful applicants will be placed on a waiting list. If a place becomes available this will be allocated using the School’s Admissions Policy and over subscriptions criteria.
  • Unsuccessful applicants have the right to appeal once every academic year – information will be sent with the decision letter from North East Lincolnshire
    Council. The deadline to appeal to be received is 19 May 2023.
