Whitehill Primary School

Together we Shine Academically, Personally & Socially

Admissions Policy



Every Stockport school and nursery follows Stockport's School Admissions Policy, which explains how places are allocated.


This document can be found on the Stockport Admissions Website.






Whitehill Primary School has a Planned Admission Number (PAN) of 30 children in each of its classes and a total of 40 part-time Nursery places (20 children in the morning and 20 children in the afternoon).


Whitehill Primary is an inclusive school and accepts admission applications from all - regardless of area. However, if the demand for places exceeds our admission limit, children from the priority area (see list below) are offered places first and then selection is made on a sibling and geographical basis (i.e. distance from home to school).


It is vital that you make your application for Nursery and Reception places in good time. Please note the application deadlines stated below:
