Joining Wensum

Firstly, thank you for taking the time to consider Wensum for your child.  Choosing a school can be a daunting process with lots of information and perspectives to consider.  The first step is to call the school office and arrange a visit to come and see us. We’ll show you around, introduce you to the children and staff, and then answer any questions you may have.

On this page you’ll find a virtual tour of our school where you can navigate around the building, have a look in the classrooms, hear from children and staff, and find out more about the work we do. 


If you would like to visit the school, please make an appointment with the school office on (01603) 620877 to meet the Headteacher.

Admissions to Wensum Junior School are co-ordinated by the local authority and the governing body must use the published admission rules to priortise applications.

All admissions applications are completed via Norfolk County Council website.

Wensum Junior is an own admission authority school and therefore there is a requirement under paragraph 2.17 of the School Admissions Code to make clear in our admission arrangements the process for requesting admission out of the normal age range.

We will consider all requests to place children outside of their normal age group including summer born and premature children in line with the requirements of paragraph 2.17 to 2.17B of the School Admissions Code.

Our pupil admission number (PAN) is 68.
