There are two standard points of entry into Waterhouses CE Primary Academy: Nursery and Reception. We also welcome pupils in any year group at various stages throughout the academic year. For further information about your child attending Waterhouses, please contact us to arrange a visit, a tour or even a taster day.

On April 1st 2017, Waterhouses converted to academy status and joined QEGSMAT. As a result, the Academy have now become responsible for determining the  Admission Arrangements. However, at present  we have arranged, via a service level agreement, for the local authority to continue to administer our Reception admissions and allocate places on our behalf based on our Governing Body approved Admissions arrangements.  ​The school now administers the Nursery admissions.  Please click the link below for a flyer about what we have to offer, or come along to our Foundation Stage Open Morning on Wednesday 13th February. For September 2019 the application period for Nursery admissions opens on 1st February and closes on 8th March.   Please complete the application form below and send it to the school office.  A copy of the form may also be requested from the school office.
