Admissions

(Pupil Applications)

 All Academies within Cuckoo Hall Academy Trust are highly aspirational schools for local children.  They are schools with a distinct Christian ethos, however we do not require parents to attend church as an entry requirement.  We simply want to offer the best education to any local child.

In-Year Admissions - Change school / nursery during the school year

Woodpecker Hall Primary Academy is a very popular school/nursery and is therefore over-subscribed with long waiting lists in each year group. If you have moved into the area and require a school or nursery place you will need to complete an In-Year Application Form. This is a universal form which can be used for any of the academies within our Trust.

The form is available from the academy office or by downloading and printing it from the link below.

This is the same process if you want to transfer to us from another school.
