About Us


Waverley is an all through school for pupils aged 4-19, with a resource base for pupils with cognition and learning difficulties. Our school community benefits greatly from our landmark award winning buildings that provide everyone with state of the art facilities for learning, teaching and training. Waverley School makes its inclusive vision a reality. We do have high expectations of behaviour, attendance, uniform, achievement and attainment. We believe in every child being given the opportunity to achieve his or her potential and even go beyond. We have a strong, well-qualified and committed team of staff who aim to do this.


Admissions Criteria:

  • A ‘looked after child’ or a child who was previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, child arrangement order, or special guardianship order.
  • Children with a brother or a sister already at the academy who will still be in attendance in September 2020.
  • Children of staff
  • Children who live nearest the academy.

Within each of these categories, priority is given to those who live nearest the academy, calculated on the basis of a straight-line measurement between home and academy.
