Admissions

Applications for admission to Woolmer Hill are managed in accordance with Surrey’s coordinated scheme on Secondary admission. Applications for Secondary school must be made by 31 October of each year. Places at Surrey Secondary schools will be offered on the basis of the preferences that are shown on the application form. Parents will be asked to rank up to six preferences and these will be considered under an equal preference system.

The school will offer 180 places for September 2020. However, children with a Statement of Special Educational Needs (SEN) or Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs) that names the school will be allocated a place before other applicants are considered. In this way, the number of places available will be reduced by the number of children with a statement that has named the school.

The admissions policy for 2020-2021 has been determined and can be viewed on the Admissions page of the website and below.

Priority of applications for 2020 is detailed in our policy (see link below):
