NET Academies Trust – Admissions

Mid-Year Admissions

A parent can apply for a place for their child at any school, at any time. If this is not during the normal admissions round, this is called a mid-year admission.

Waltham Holy Cross Primary Academy currently has places available, however places are limited for certain year groups. Places are also available across all year groups within other schools in NET Academies Trust, which are:

Abbotsweld Primary Academy Partridge Road, Harlow, Essex CM18 6TE
Jerounds Primary Academy Pyenest Road, Harlow, Essex CM19 4PH
Katherines Primary Academy Brookside, Harlow, Essex CM19 5NJ
Latton Green Primary Academy Riddings Lane, Harlow, Essex CM18 7HT
Longwood Primary Academy Paringdon Road, Harlow, Essex CM18 7RQ
Waltham Holy Cross Primary Academy Quendon Drive, Waltham Abbey, Essex EN9 1LG

Your child is not guaranteed a place at your preferred school. You should not remove your child from their existing school before you have received another offer.

NET Academies Trust manages mid-year admissions to the Academy and we recommend that you contact the schools you are interested in before making a decision to move house or submit an application.

If you would like to apply for a place, please complete the Application form here and send to the school: office@whc.netacademies.net Guidance notes are included with the form or please contact the school office should you require assistance.

Please note that, should you apply during a school holiday period, your application will be considered as received on the first school day following the holiday.

Applying from overseas – for non-UK citizens, the child must be in the UK before the application can be processed and proof of residency such as an endorsed (stamped) passport or entry visa will be required with the application.

We hold school tours every Tuesday at 10am. If you would like to book a place, please contact the school office by phone on:  01992 713191 or email: office@whc.netacademies.net
