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, we have arranged, via a service level agreement, for the local authority Staffordshire County Council to continue to administer our Reception admissions and allocate places on our behalf based on our Governing Body approved Admissions arrangements.  ​

If you wish for your child to enter Waterhouses CE Primary Academy Reception for the academic year 2022/23 or 2023/24, please use the links below to read about our current school admissions policy and visit the Local Authority Admissions Page.
