Waddesdon Church of England School is a heavily oversubscribed school. There are waiting lists for every year group. Waddesdon School is an academy, having previously been a voluntary aided Church of England school.
This means that, unlike community schools, decisions about admission rest with the Governing Body which follows its published admission arrangements. Nevertheless Governors are required by law to operate within the coordinated admission arrangements of the Local Authority (Buckinghamshire Council) for entry into Year 7. Applications for other year groups come directly to the school.
Year 7 entry in September 2023
We are heavily over-subscribed and are unable to offer a place to all applicants who have applied for Year 7 entry in September 2023. Buckinghamshire Council will notify allocation of places on 1 March 2023. Applicants wishing to appeal against a decision to refuse a place should use the appeal form below, or request an appeal form direct from the school. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The completed form should be returned to the school by 29 March 2023. Appeals will be heard in May or June 2023 by an independent panel appointed by the Oxford Diocesan Board of Education.
