Admission arrangements 2022 and 2023

Wokingham Borough Council admission arrangements 2022 to 2023

Every school has a set of rules known as admission arrangements to help the allocation of places. Admissions authorities (the council and voluntary-aided, academies and free schools) use these rules to allocate places if they receive more applications than places available.

Read our admission policies for community and voluntary controlled schools, below:

Nursery admission

Some schools have a nursery or foundation unit for children aged 3 - 5. Applications are made directly to the school for these places.

Nurseries that set their own arrangements

Some schools set their own arrangements. You can find out which nurseries below:
