Admissions

The Whitchurch Church of England Federation is committed to developing an inclusive setting that reflects the diversity of the local community.

The Whitchurch Church of England Federation has a distinctive Christian ethos which is at the heart of each academy and provides an inclusive, caring and supportive environment where children can learn and flourish in settings shaped by Christian values. All parents applying for a place at either of our Church of England Academies are asked to respect this ethos and its importance to the school community. It is hoped that all children who attend our Church of England Academies will be able to participate (as appropriate) in the religious life of the school (including collective worship and religious education).

This does not affect the right of parents who are not Christian to apply for a place. Indeed, through our commitment to inclusivity, families from other faiths and no faith are warmly welcomed.
