1. Admissions processes at age 4+ and 11+ are handled by Northamptonshire County Council (0300 1261000 or via their website www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/admissions ).

Parents are also asked to register their details of pre-school children with the school as early as possible. The Headteacher is then able to write to those parents in the Autumn Term before a child is due to start school in the following September. Tours of the school are offered and details given about the formal application procedure. Registering with the school does not have any bearing on whether your child will gain a place at our school. Places are allocated by the Local Authority based upon the published criteria (see below). The deadline for this application is currently in the January before the child is due to start school.

2. Queries about admissions in all other year groups should be made to the school, and the application process is described in the document below “In Year School Admissions Request for Woodland View”.

Parents are asked to contact the school to arrange a visit and submit the admissions request form (below) as soon as possible.
