For a place at Rivington Primary School you need to apply to the Admissions Department at St Helens Council who handle all our applications for places to school and nursery. 


If your child will turn 4 between 1st September and 31st August, he or she can start primary school the following September. 


The online application system can be used for Nursery and Reception Year applications.
