Parents and carers wanting their child to attend Darrick Wood Junior School should contact the local authority for details of how to apply, or visit the School Admissions pages of the Bromley website where the appropriate forms (either ‘Infant to Junior transfer application form’ or ‘Primary in-year transfer form’ depending on the circumstances of the application) can be downloaded.
There are ninety places in each Year Group. Under normal circumstances all children attending Darrick Wood Infant School will be able to transfer to the Junior School. Applications are invited for any remaining places from parents of children attending other Infant or Primary Schools. If there are more applications than places available then places will be allocated using the following criteria:
*Please note that the sibling criterion does not extend between Darrick Wood Junior School and Darrick Wood (Senior) School. Attendance at this school will not have any effect on the outcome of applications to the Senior School.
Occasionally, for a variety of reasons, parents wish their child to change schools at other times. If you wish to apply for a place at this school mid-year, please complete a ‘Primary in-year transfer form’ (available on the website above) and send it to the Bromley Admissions team.
Where the school receives a request for a place for a child mid-year, the Headteacher will follow the agreed protocol amongst schools to ensure that the award of a place at this school is appropriate. At the very least this will involve a conversation with the Headteacher of the child’s current school.
Detailed information on the work that the school does to support children and their families through the process of transition from Year 2 to Year 3 is held on the following section of this website:
The cost of school lunches for the second half of the Spring Term is £63.80
In the event of adverse weather, a text message will be sent to parents and information posted on the website. If you do not receive any communication to this effect, please assume school is open as normal.
