Please apply for a place at our school via the Hampshire Schools Admissions website:

Click the link above to find out how to apply for a place in our main round of new Reception Year (Year R) September admissions or to join our school in either Year R, Year 1 or Year 2 at any other time.

Wallisdean Infant School is a Hampshire County Council LA maintained school, catering for children between the ages of 4 – 7 years. Although not legally required to attend school until the term following their fifth birthday, most children join our school from the September following their fourth birthday. Entry to Year R is staggered at the beginning of the Autumn Term, allowing your child to build their confidence in a new setting with new friends and teachers but without disrupting routines established through their previous attendance at pre-school. Most children attend full time within the first week.


In Reception Year (YrR) we follow the national Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS) and in Year 1 (Yr1) and Year 2 (Yr2) pupils follow Key Stage 1 (KS1) of the National Curriculum.


We look forward to meeting you and to your child(ren) joining our school.

NB: Our Admissions Policy is available under ‘Key Information / Policies and Documents‘.
