Come and Meet us!


At Willowbrook we endeavour to be fully inclusive.  We value all our pupils and we celebrate everyone’s achievements and successes.  We welcome pupils from different cultural and religious backgrounds.  We believe that everyone is special and we strive to ensure that every member of our school community reaches their full potential.  No pupil is ever refused admission on grounds of their background or academic ability.  We however do have a strict admission criteria.


Looked after children will be given first priority ahead of all other applicants.


There is no guarantee of a place for children living in the priority admissions area. In the event of over subscription places will be allocated using the criteria in our admission arrangements document. 


If you would like your child to attend our school, we strongly recommend that you visit the school for a tour and informal chat with the Headteacher or Deputy or Assistant Head.  We look forward to welcoming you and working with you.
