About primary school waiting lists
Categories of places
As part of the admissions process, some Wandsworth schools operate banding or have different categories of place.
Three schools (Hotham, Shaftesbury Park and Wix) each have a bi-lingual class and an ‘English’ class. In both classes the children will follow the English curriculum but in the bilingual class the curriculum is be delivered in French for a proportion of the time. Applicants can if they wish express a preference to be admitted into the bi-lingual or English only class. Places are allocated on the basis of the schools’ admission criteria. The waiting list position shown for these schools is within the respective category of place.
Faith based places
Many church or other faith based schools offers places to children
of families who are practising members of a Christian church or other
faith. Five faith based schools also offers open places based on the
school’s admission criteria without reference to faith. These schools
are Gatton Primary School (Muslim), Mosaic Jewish Primary School, St
George’s CE Primary School, St Michael’s CE Primary School and St Mary’s
CE Primary school, Putney. The waiting list position shown for these
schools is within the respective category of place.
