Deciding where to send your child for their first day at ‘Big School’ is such an important decision for both you and your child. You want your child to feel safe and happy in school and to be enthusiastic about learning new and exciting things whilst they are here. We would love you to come and see our vibrant, friendly and nurturing environment.
We hope you enjoy our video below which introduces West Hill to you.
Open Days for Admissions for September 2023 have now been completed. Open Days for Admissions for September 2024 will be available between September 2023 and January 2024. Booking for these will open later in the year.
We want your children’s first experience of school to be a successful and happy one and we rely on your help in settling your child in. In the summer term before your child starts school, you and your child will be invited to an Induction Day which is a ‘play and stay’ session for your child and a chance for you all to meet the teacher and other families who will be joining West Hill. It is also an opportunity for you to receive all the information you need for your child to start school in September. In addition the Nursery or Reception teacher will come and visit you and your child at home before you start school which is another chance for to ask any questions you might have. We understand that starting school can be daunting so hope that this will make the first day less overwhelming for your child and you will also have had the chance to get to know the class teacher.
Choosing a new school is a big decision whatever age you are. If you require a place in a Wandsworth primary school after the school year has begun, you will need to complete the relevant application form for ‘in-year’ admission. You need to contact the Pupil Services (020 8871 7316) to find out the availability of a place at West Hill.
