As a school we are in charge of our Pre-School admissions so if you are interested in your child attending our Pre-School please contact the Pre-School office directly.
As a school maintained by the local authority, William Harding School adheres to Buckinghamshire County Council admission arrangements.
Please follow the link below for the Council's admission policy and procedures in full.
Once Buchinghamshire County Council has notified parents that a place at our school has been allocated, you will be contacted by the school office to arrange a visit to the school for you and your child. Once a place has been accepted you will need to complete an application pack which provides us with important information about your child, we will also need to see the child’s birth certificate and a utility bill as proof of address.

Places are allocated according to the following criteria, in order of priority:
Children living in the area normally served by the school (as agreed with the Admissions Authority)
Younger siblings of older children who will still be in attendance at the School on the date of admission
Children with exceptional medical or social needs, supported by written evidence from an appropriate professional
In the event of over-subscription, once places have been allocated under criteria 1-4, the remaining places will be awarded according to the proximity of the child’s home to the school, as measured by the nearest available route. This is from the front door of the child’s home to the school’s nearest entrance gate.
