Welcome to Wymondham College Prep School
Thank you for your interest in a place for your child at our new school. We will open in September 2020 in a brand-new, purpose built primary school on the site of Wymondham College (subject to planning consent and consultation). In our first year we will open with two reception classes (60 pupils) and if there is sufficient community demand, we will open with Y5 day students and boarders. There will be up to 45 Y5 day student places and 16 boarding places.
Please complete and return the online form below using the link provided to register your interest and enable us to keep you up to date with events and developments at the school.
An expression of interest is NOT an application.
Applications for reception places will be via the normal Norfolk Local Authority route with the normal Norfolk time lines. Children born between 1st September 2015 and 31st August 2016 are eligible to apply for a place in our reception class. Norfolk Local Authority will handle these applications as they do for all reception places in our county. The application process opens on 27th September 2019 you will need to make your application for a place by 15th January 2020. You will be notified by Norfolk Local authority on 16th April 2020.
By registering your interest with us we can monitor demand and involve you in shaping our school as it moves towards opening. It is important that you register with us now if you intend to apply for a place in our reception cohort of September 2020.
Applications for Y5 places (children who are currently in Y3 in their primary school) will be made directly to the school and this website will keep you up to date about how to apply for a place. We envisage that we will open our application process for Y5 places to similar time lines as reception class applications, if expressions of interest suggest that there is sufficient demand.
We have worked closely with Norfolk Local Authority to identify areas of the wider Wymondham area that will be given priority for places in our Prep School. We are currently awaiting sign-off of our Admissions Policy by the DfE and as soon as that has happened it will be published here on this website.
We are immensely excited by the opportunity to grow primary education on the site of Wymondham College. It is our intention that students in the Prep School will progress into the College for their secondary education which enables us to embed the highest quality teaching and learning and a wide range of extra-curricular activities from a very early age to build independent and resilient learners who go on to become well rounded, successful adults.
