Our school admits children between the ages of 4 and 9 (Reception to Year 4) in accordance with the Dorset Education Authority policy. Priority is given to families living in or transferring to the area normally served by our school but we do take a large percentage of children outside of our catchment area.

If you live outside this area and would prefer your child to attend Wimborne First School you will be considered under the Authority’s policy on parental preferences. Please do not hesitate to contact Dorset School Admissions, who will advise you of the procedure to follow.

All applications for school places must be made through the Local Authority e.g. Dorset, Poole or Bournemouth admissions.

Applications into established year groups should also be made via the local authority. Application forms can be downloaded from their website via the following link
