Year 1 to 6

Wilbraham Primary joined The Aspire Educational Trust with effect from 1st April 2018 and the Trust is now our admissions authority.?

We offer 90 places in each year group for children wanting to join Wilbraham Primary School.  

Children’s names are placed on our waiting list and places are allocated by the Local Authority in the following priority order:

  • Looked-After children or children in public care.
  • Children with exceptional medical or social needs.
  • Children who have a brother or sister (living at the same address) already attending the school.
  • Children who live nearest to the school.

Applying for a School Place

To apply for a school place, you need to complete an application form from Manchester School Admissions.  You can download the application form by clicking the link below.  We have also included a "Notes of Guidance" help sheet to assist you in completing the admissions form.

School Admissions Form

You will need to complete parts A, B and C.  Unless you are new to the UK, section D needs to be filled in and stamped by the Headteacher at your child's current school, or the last school they attended if they aren't in school now.

Post your completed form to:

Intergrated Admissions
P.O. Box 532
Town Hall Extension
?M60 2LA

If you don't get the place you want

There’s no guarantee that you’ll get a place in the school you put first.  But if you put other schools, and they have places, Manchester School Admissions will offer your child a place at one of those and put you on the waiting lists for your top preferences.

If you don’t get any of your preferences, Manchester School Admissions will offer you the nearest school with places and put you on the waiting lists for all your preferences.

If a school fills all its places, it keeps a waiting list of children who missed out.  Your position on the list changes as children take up places at other schools, move in to Manchester, or move away.

For further information on how waiting lists work, please visit Manchester City Council's website by clicking the link below:
