Applying for an In-Year Admission?
If you are interested in your child joining Winnington Park as an ‘In Year Transfer’ then please contact us to enquire whether there are spaces in the relevant year group. Our school is two form entry with 60 places in each year group. We will organise an opportunity for you to visit, to meet the headteacher, discuss the curriculum, see our different classes in action, tour the site and to meet your child’s potential new class.
If you then decide to apply for a place, this can be done via https://www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/residents/education-and-learning/school-admissions/object-to-admission-arrangements/in-year-school-transfers. You can apply for a place twenty school days before the date the place is required.
Once the application is received by school you will hear directly from us with regards to the offer of a place (if one is available) and an agreed start date. At this stage data collection forms will be supplied to obtain information that school needs and also an information booklet which provides lots of helpful information about school.
If at any stage in the process you have any questions/queries please contact our office team who will be happy to help.
