Admissions Arrangements


All our admissions are decided by the Local authority, for more information please call Bradford admissions on 01274 439200.

All children in Bradford are admitted into Reception Class in the academic year in which they are five. All children begin school in September.

In the November before your child starts school, an application pack containing an APS1 (Application) form will be available from Bradford Council. This form gives you the opportunity to name five schools you would like your child to attend, in preference order. The application form needs to be completed and returned to the authority at the beginning of January. Parents will be informed about places during the April before the children start school.

Wycliffe CE Primary School has an admission limit of 60 and all applications for admissions are dealt with by the Local Authority and not by the school. If there are more than 60 requests for places then priority is given to siblings of children already attending the school and to those children living nearest to the school.

Further details about admissions can be obtained from the Local Authority (Pupil Access) on 01274 439200 or click on the information links below.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to visit the school.
