Is your child starting school in September 2024?
If your child was born between 1st September 2019 and 31st August 2020, you will need to apply for a school place for September 2024. We would be delighted to welcome you to Wyke Primary Academy!
We know that choosing a school for your child is a big decision – it can be both an exciting and nerve-wracking time for children and parents alike! We understand it can be a daunting process for parents, especially those who are going through this process for the first time - we are here to support families to ensure this important decision is the right one for each child’s learning journey.
Come along to one of our Open Day Events to find our more about our school and life at Wyke Primary Academy.
How to apply
If you live in Surrey, you can find further information about school admissions and apply online here or you can call 0300 200 1004. If you live in Hampshire, you can find further information about school admissions and apply online here or you can call 0300 555 1377.
The Kite Academy Trust is the admission authority for all its academies. The allocation of school places at initial entry (Reception Class) is co-ordinated by the Local Authority Admissions Team in accordance with our published admission arrangements (see below).
Wyke Primary Academy has a Published Admissions Number (PAN) of 30.
Once places have been offered by the Local Authority, any waiting list for places will be ranked according to our oversubscription criteria and managed by the local authority, Surrey County Council.
Applying for a place at a school during the academic year and outside of the normal round of admissions (as described above) is called an ‘in-year admission'. An in-year admission may be made, for example, if you move house and your child can no longer attend their current school. Any parent can apply for a place at Wyke Primary Academy at any time.
In-year admissions are co-ordinated by the Local Authority on our behalf. Further information can be found here. Applications should be made using the Surrey School Admissions In-year Application Portal.

School Admissions Team
Surrey County Council,
PO Box 475,
REIGATE, RH2 2H
Alternatively, applications can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Guidance notes can be found below.
Upon receipt of an in-year application, the Local Authority will process the application as quickly as possible, usually within 15 working days of receiving your fully completed application form. Where an application is refused, there is the right to appeal. Details of how to appeal can be found below.
Where an applicant is offered a school place following an in-year application, and the offer is accepted, arrangements will be made for the child to start school as soon as possible, particularly where the child is out of school.
Please note: Parents wishing to remain on a waiting list for in-year transfers for the academic year 2023-24 should reapply on the Surrey County Council Admissions Portal after 1st September 2023.
Right to Appeal
All parents have a right to express a preference for the school they would like their child to attend. The admission authority must offer a place at that school unless there is a legal reason for refusing a place. All parents have the right to appeal against any decision made by or on behalf of an admission authority as to the school their child attends under legislation produced by the Department for Education (DfE).
