If you would like your child to attend our school, please complete and return the Pre-Admissions Registration Form below (this can either be dropped into/posted to the school office or emailed to office@waynfleteinfants.co.uk). This will ensure your child is invited to attend our Wizzers Pre-School Groups during the year prior to school admission. Please note that this does not in any way replace the need to complete West Northamptonshire Council’s Admission Process.

We look forward to welcoming you into our school community in the near future. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any queries. We would encourage you to look at the documents contained on our website to find out more about our school.
