OUR LADY OF COMPASSION is a Catholic School under the trusteeship of the Archdiocese of Liverpool.  It is maintained by Sefton Council.   The co-ordination of admissions arrangements is undertaken by the Local Authority.  The Governing Body has set its admissions number at 30.      

Our principal role as a Catholic school is to participate in the mission of the Catholic Church by providing a framework which will help children to grow in their understanding of the Good News and in the practice of their faith.  The school will help the children develop fully as human beings and prepare them to undertake their responsibilities as Catholic in society.  The school asks all parents applying for a place here to respect this ethos and its importance to the school community.  This does not affect the rights of parents who are not of the faith of this school to apply for and be considered for a place here.

ADMISSIONS TO THE SCHOOL will be determined by the Governing Body.  Parents must complete a Local Authority Preference Form or apply online via the website  If you wish to have your application considered against that school's faith/denomination criteria then you should also complete the Supplementary Form which is available from the school.  All preferences listed will be considered on an equal basis and, where there are more applications than the number of places available, the following set of OVERSUBSCRIPTION CRITERIA will be applied.
