School Admissions - Reception to Year 6

Whiteknights Primary School is a two-form entry school, which means that our allocation for each year group is limited to 60 pupils. Applications for places at our school are administered by the Wokingham Borough Council, and therefore parents and carers must apply through their website. Every year, the closing date for reception class applications falls on 15 January, and notification letters are sent out the following April communicating the result of the process.

PAN and Oversubscription Criteria
As mentioned above, the published admission number is 60 places in each year of entry into Reception from September 2022. The school admits up to this number each year and, when full, the school will have 420 pupils on roll. 

Where there are fewer applicants than places available, all applicants will be admitted. In the event of there being greater demand than there are place available to the school and after the admission of children with an Education Health and Care Plan that names the school, places will be offered using the following oversubscription criteria, in keeping with the School Admissions Code 2021.
