We are an inclusive Trust that welcomes children from all backgrounds and of all abilities. The level of ability or any special educational need that a child may have plays no part in the admissions policy of the Trust. The only restriction we place on entry is that of number. Year on year the school is oversubscribed.
Wickham Common Primary School is part of Compass Academy Trust. The Trust adheres to the admissions arrangements set out by Bromley Local Authority who manage the admissions process for all applications to Wickham Common Primary School in accordance with the DfE Schools Admission Code.
Applications cannot be made directly to the school. Should you wish your child to be considered for a place at Wickham Common Primary School, it is essential that you complete an application form submit it to the Bromley Admissions Team who process all applications for families who are Bromley residents. Information on the admissions procedure can be found by clicking on the following link or by browsing the Bromley Local Authority website at www.bromley.gov.uk. If you live outside of Bromley you must apply through your own Local Authority.
