Watling Park School is a two form entry school with an admission limit of 60 pupils per year group. We currently offer places for children from Reception to Year 5 and will grow organically to full capacity in the coming years. The admissions process at Watling Park School follows those of Barnet Council and applications will be considered as per their guidelines.
It is important to note that you need to apply for a place through Barnet Council, even if you have siblings currently enrolled at the school. The deadline for admissions is set by the council quite early. Therefore it is very important to apply as soon as possible. Admission guidance is available from Barnet Council’s website.

* Parents or carers who live outside of Barnet apply for schools in Barnet through their home council. Any offer of a place in a Barnet school will be made by the parent/carer’s home council.
Children are eligible for Reception in the September of the school year in which they become 5 years old (1st Sept. – 31st Aug.). In September, the Reception children will have a slightly staggered start to Watling Park School. Families will be expected to meet with the class teacher for an ‘All About Me’ meeting to enable a smooth transition for the children to school.
Prospective parents who have moved into the area are invited to make direct contact with the school to arrange a visit and find out more about us. If parents wish to apply for a place they must contact Barnet Council to apply directly though them.
