Places are offered to all successful families on 1st March 2024. If you put Sharples School as one of your preferences, you will automatically be placed on a waiting list for a place.

Please note, due to the amount of movement around places currently, we won’t be compiling a Waiting List until the end of March. After this time, if you wish to know whereabouts you are on our Waiting List, please email with your child’s full name and date of birth and we will contact you with this information.

If you wish to appeal, you will need to do this with the Council at  Bolton Council Secondary School Appeals.

Sharples School is currently full in all year groups. For more information on applying for a place at Sharples School please see our documentation below. Further information is also available by visiting

If after reading the listed documentation, you wish to discuss any aspects of the admission arrangements, please contact the school.



All applications should be sent to our Admissions and Attendance Officer
