Wolsey House warmly welcomes new families to visit the school but currently our arrangements have changed since March 2020 due to COVID-19. Please contact the school for more information.
Wolsey House has three classes of 30 pupil places for each school year, from Reception through to Year 6 and 52 part-time equivalent places for Nursery.
Admissions for the Reception class are dealt with by Leicester City Local Authority, Nursery places are allocated by the school.
Wolsey House is a state maintained community primary school which adheres to Leicester City Local Authority regulations for admissions, in-year admissions and statutory admission times (Reception and Nursery class). This is reflected in our Admissions Policy which is currently being reviewed (Aug 21). Please also see the Local Authority's website Admissions LCC. The School Admissions Code is available on the Department for Education's web site DfE website.
How should parents appeal if their child has not been allocated a place at Wolsey House?
