junior admissions

Starting school in 2022

Year 3 – children born between 1st September 2014 and 31s August 2015

The school admits 30 children to each of our year 3 classes (90 in total). Please note that all year 2 children in the infant school, must make an eadmission via the Local Authority for a year 3 place in the junior school. There is no automatic right of admission from the infants to the juniors.

Children are admitted to year 3 classes at the beginning of the Autumn Term.

If we are oversubscribed (our maximum intake is 90 places), the London Borough of Ealing Admissions Section will allocate places using the following criteria. These are listed in priority order:

  • Children in public care (those looked after by a local authority under section 22 of the Children Act 1989).
  • Children who have an exceptional medical, social or educational need that requires their attendance at a particular school
  • Children who have siblings already attending the school
  • Children living closest to Dormers Wells Infant and Junior School.

Please visit the London Borough of EALING Primary Schools Admissions site. Go to www.ealing.gov.uk/admissions for their step to step guide, you make your application via www.edamissions.org.uk

Before making your application:

Submitting a late application greatly reduces your chance of getting a place at our school. 

If you do not live in the London Borough of Ealing, you must apply through your own council. 

The school admissions team can assist you with any inquiries you may have in relation to school admissions on 020 85711230 or e-mail dwijadmin@dwij.co.uk If parents are finding completing the on-line application form difficult, the office will make an appointment for someone to help them.

Casual admissions throughout the year

When parents move into the area or wish to change their child’s school, they should contact The London Borough of Ealing, for an application form, parents will be advised whether a place is available in a particular year group.

If a place is available, the family will be invited to visit the school. The family will be shown around the school and asked to complete an application form for Dormers Wells. This has been temporarily stopped due to Covid 19 restrictions.

Where parents or carers are planning to remove their child from the school, the head teacher should be informed as soon as the parent has been offered a new school and the parents must complete a school leaver’s form. Information about the child will then be passed on to the new school.
