We were over-subscribed again last year - please ensure you complete your application before the deadline to maximise your family's chance of obtaining a place. Failure to do so will significantly reduce any chance of successfully obtaining a place at our school.

Changing school

If your child is already attending a Primary school and you wish to move to Westerings, read ECC's information on moving to a different school.

All mid-year applications should be made directly to the school using the Westerings mid-year application form.

Please remember to include proof of your new address which must be:

  • a copy of a signed tenancy agreement if you are renting

  • a solicitor’s letter confirming you have exchanged contracts if you are purchasing your new home

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

We recommend that you:

  • speak to your child's current teacher or headteacher before applying to another school

  • contact the schools you are interested in before making a decision to move house or submit an application
