For all in-year admissions please contact the school office at Wainstalls directly. Since September 2013, academies can accept in-year admission applications directly from parents. An in-year admission application is one that is made outside of the normal time of transfer between schools, for example when a family moves to a new house part way through a school year.

ADMISSIONS TO RECEPTION IN 2024
Your child will be eligible for a Primary School place from September 2024, if they were born between:
- 1st September 2019;

Calderdale Council co-ordinates admissions to all schools within Calderdale. If you live within Calderdale, you must complete a Calderdale online application, even if you wish to choose a school outside the Calderdale area as one of your preferences. Parents of children resident outside Calderdale, who want to apply for a Calderdale school must apply through their home local authority.
You can find all the information you require on the Council's school admissions web page.
The deadline for applying for a place for your child for Reception Class in September 2024 is 15th January 2024. Applications can be made from 17th November 2023 onwards and need to be completed through the Local Authority's Primary Admissions portal. Further information about this can be found at: Calderdale Primary Admissions.
