At each event you will be given the opportunity to hear from key members of staff, tour the school and meet some of our pupils.

To book a place at one of these events, please contact us on 01454 868610.

 

In Year Admissions

Whether your child is joining us for their first day of school, or starting with us in Year 6, we look forward to meeting each and every new pupil and their parents/carers at Wheatfield.  We are here to provide you with all the key information you need and support you and your child with the transition process.

We would recommend a visit to our school during term time, and in school hours, so that you can make the most of your visit.  We also like our new pupils to come in for a short introduction session with their new class and teacher; we feel this really helps them settle in.  Please call us on 01454 868610 and speak to one of our administrators to make an appointment.
