The Wavell School


Save the Date!

Our Open Evening for prospective families will be on Thursday 10th October 2024. Details to follow...

We are a popular and oversubscribed school with waiting lists in each year group.

Applications should be made online via the Hampshire Admissions Website and you will be notified of the outcome within 15 school days. We run a two-day induction programme for our Casual Entrants; this programme enables your child to get to know the School and key members of staff as well as enabling us to assess their ability in various disciplines in order to provide the most appropriate setting and curriculum for their needs. Should we be unable to offer a place due to the Year Group being full, we will offer to place your child on our Waiting List. On the occasions that Hampshire County Council’s SEN team admit more than 4 students to the Resourced Provision this may require us to work to a PAN of less than 200 in Years 8 – 11
