Visit the school

We invite you to visit us through attendance at one of our regular Open Mornings or through arranging an informal private tour. A visit will enable you to explore our grounds and facilities, meet the Head Teacher and visit your child’s appropriate year group. Our Admissions Registrar will also be on hand to guide you through the admissions process, discuss availability and answer any questions you may have.

Register your child

Should you wish to apply for a place, we ask that you formally register your interest by completing our Registration Form which can be submitted online. At this stage a non-refundable registration fee of £75 is required. A copy of your child's most recent school report will also be requested for applications in Years 1 - 6.

Pupil taster 

Your child will be invited to attend a taster session within their appropriate year group to experience a typical school day at Woodlands.

Formal Offer

Following your child's taster day and in consultation with the Head Teacher, our Registrar will confirm our offer of a place and provide you with a formal offer.  At this stage a deposit of £600 is required to formally accept and secure the place.

Formal acceptance

Upon our receipt of your formal acceptance and the deposit of £600, you will receive confirmation of your child’s place along with further information in preparation for your child joining us.

Settling in Sessions

Where appropriate, your child will be invited to attend a settling in session to meet with their classmates and teacher prior to their entry date.
