Admissions information

Primary schools catchment area map

Nursery admissions are handled internally by the Nursery Admissions Panel consisting of school staff and Governors.

Children can be registered onto the waiting list from the age of 2 years.

Application forms and admissions policies are available from the school office or from the school website. Completed forms should be handed into the school office during school hours with the child’s original birth certificate or passport to verify their date of birth.

Children are eligible for placement in Nursery the term after their third birthday. However, the majority of places are filled in September due to the admission of children into the Reception year. Parents are contacted as soon as a place is available .

If the waiting list is oversubscribed the admission criteria (see Nursery Admissions Policy) will be used.

Nursery transfers are only accepted in exceptional circumstances.
