Prospective Parents

School Tours

We are delighted that you have chosen to research our school and we extend a very warm welcome to you and your family.  Whether your child is starting Nursery or Reception or moving school, it is a big step in a child’s life and we aim to help you with your choice of school as much as we can.

Here at Woodheys Primary School we follow the Trafford Local Authority Admissions procedures. Prior to the admissions deadline, we host a number of open afternoons for prospective parents to get a feel for our school. Our next school tour is scheduled for Monday 8th January at 4.30pm. This tour will be focusing on prospective Nursery and Reception parents/carers.  We would love to meet you in person and show you around our school and share some of the wonderful opportunities we provide for our children at Woodheys.  Please telephone our school office on 0161 9734478 to be added on to our school tour. 


In the meantime, we are trying to make choosing your new school as supportive as possible, and still provide you with all the information you need.  Click on this link to be taken to the front page of our website where you can explore our school information further.
