Applications for entry into our Reception class begins in October (for entry in the following academic year). Prospective parents should apply for a school place by the closing date in the academic year of their child's 4th Birthday.

Our Pupil Admission Number (P.A.N) is 15 i.e we can offer up to a maximum of 15 pupils a place in our reception class (in very exceptional circumstances we may exceed our P.A.N). Over 60% of our current pupil cohort comes from out of catchment. The headteacher would be delighted to show prospective parents around the school - please ring or e-mail the office to make an appointment.


From 10th December 2018 to 21st January 2019 the Governing Body will be consulting on the School’s Admissions Policy for the September 2020 intake.

School admissions authorities must consult on their admission arrangements if they propose a change other than an increase to their published admission number. They must also consult if they have not consulted in the last seven years. In the case of Woolhampton Church of England Primary School, the consultation is required due to time elapsed and no changes to the current policy are proposed.

The proposed 2020/2021 Admissions Policy may be viewed using the link opposite. Should you wish to obtain a paper copy of the proposed Admissions Policy, please contact the school office on 01189 712270 or 01189 714424.

Should you wish to make any comments regarding the proposed policy, please email by 21st January 2019.
