Woodlem Park School admits children with a broad range of academic ability. However, consideration is given as to whether or not a child would genuinely cope with the curriculum and the School environment. Places are offered, subject to our assessment criteria, when we are confident that we can meet the needs of each individual applicant whilst maintaining the balance of needs within each year group.
Starting a new school at any age can be a daunting prospect not only for pupils, but parents too! At Woodlem Park, we aim to provide you with clear and comprehensive information about the admissions procedure, from initial enquiry to the first day at school.
Whilst most children join us at the start of a new academic year, admissions are possible throughout the year, subject to assessment and availability of a place. However, we are increasingly oversubscribed and early registration is always advised, especially for our Nursery and Reception class intake.
Deciding on sending your child off to school or going to a new school is likely a challenging decision that any parents make. Woodlem Park is a school which welcomes applications from all families regardless of nationality, ethnicity or religion. Woodlem caters for children with a range of additional learning needs.
We aim to maintain a hassle free straightforward and transparent admission process. If you are interested in enrolling your child in Woodlem you can go through the admission policy and initiate the procedures. If you require any additional requirements or have any query regarding the admission process, reach out to us.
