We are delighted that you are interested in a place for your child at Emmanuel Holcombe. 

Our intake number into preschool is 13 and made up of part time and full time places. Our intake into school is 15.

We usually offer two open days throughout the year where you can see school in action. If you can't make these, get in touch to arrange a convenient time to come and look around. We've also produced a virtual tour of school, which is available on the front page of the website.


Admission into preschool and all year groups, except reception, are managed  by school. Preschool application deadline for a September entry is 1st March. 


 For further information, please contact the school office. 

Admission into reception is managed by Bury Council. Full information and contact details can be found on the Bury council primary school admissions link below. You must apply online to Bury Council between November and 15th January, even if you currently attend our perschool. Notification of places will be communicated by the council in April.

Open days

We have held our two open days for this academic year. Our next open days will be held in October 2022 and January 2023. 

We would be delighted to show you around school if you can not make our open days or can't wait for them. Please make an appointment with the school office and we will show you school in action. 

We are absolutely delighted to be able to welcome you into school this October and January. Emmanuel Holcombe is a fantastic place where children and staff work and learn side by side. It is lovely to have our school community back together and we would love you to come and see us in action. 

There is no need to make an appointment for our open days- just turn up anytime in between 9.30-11.14 am and 1.30-3.20pm. 

Our year 6 children will be available to guide you around school and tell you all about us.

We will be serving tea and coffee in the hall and be available for a chat and answer any questions you might have. 

Looking forward to seeing you on the 14th October.
