Learning at the heart of everything we do

 Reception

We would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your family, whether this is your first child to join us at Whitehall Infant School or if you are already part of our community. We look forward to you being part of the Whitehall Infant School family.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we are unable to have parents visit the school. We have added information to this page that may be helpful to you and will continue to update this page.

 

Applications for Reception places must be made via the London Borough of Hillingdon.
