Admissions to Wadham School
Throughout Somerset there is a policy of "local schools for local children". Each school is surrounded by a catchment area from which its students come. Wadham serves the catchment area of our two partner middle schools, Swanmead Community School in Ilminster and Maiden Beech Academy in Crewkerne. Parents seeking a place for their son or daughter may, however, apply to Wadham even if they do not live in the catchment area.
Parents will be given their first choice preference of school wherever possible. Where demand exceeds available places preference is given in the following order:
It is not expected that any parents who have expressed a preference will be refused admission to Wadham for their son or daughter in September 2019.
A programme is in place to ensure a positive experience for students transferring to Wadham and our arrangements are reviewed with our partner middle schools each year to achieve the best possible transition. In addition to the Open Evening in September, there are contacts throughout the year between staff at Wadham and those at our partner schools. Later in the year there will be contact with the Director of Learning and tutors who will be responsible for the students on transfer.
Your son or daughter will have the opportunity to visit Wadham during the school day towards the end of the summer term to get a first hand experience of the school. Parents and students will also be invited to an induction evening on Wednesday 3rd July 2019.
Should you wish to visit the school at any other time or need an answer to a question please telephone us so that we can help you.
