Admissions Arrangements

Parents considering applying for a place for their child at Wincham School can arrange a visit by contacting the school office.


Admissions Policy
The latest Cheshire West and Chester Admissions policy can be found online here, or alternatively you can call 0300 123 7039.

The school currently has an admission limit of 45 pupils per year group.

We have a 26 place Nursery.  For information about the admission arrangements for Nursery places, please visit 

There is one intake of 45 into our Reception classes each September. All these children will become 5 years old by the 31st August of the following year.


In Year Transfer Applications

If you are thinking about a change of school for your child (e.g. you have moved into the area or you feel that your child would benefit from leaving their current school and joining us) this is known as an In Year Transfer

The first step is to call us to check that we have places available in the appropriate year group. If we do have places we will invite you to have a tour of the school and a chat with our Head Teacher.

The next step is to make an online application here

We will then call you to organise a start date.

** If you apply for an In Year Transfer during the school summer holidays **we will not be able to view your application until 1st September (this is true for all schools in Cheshire West). Please do not assume that you have a place because you have made an application. We will contact you as soon as we can after 1st September to progress your application. 


Admission Induction Arrangements

Every effort is made to ensure that children settle quickly and happily into both nursery and school. Intakes to the Nursery and Reception are staggered initially, enabling staff to give children more attention during their first weeks. Shorter sessions can be arranged if children experience difficulty in settling. Before starting school, all children will have had a preliminary visit. A settling in period is planned for the first few weeks of term beginning with half days and then gradually lengthening the school day until children are happy to stay for a full day.
