Parents whose children will be three years old during the period 1 September 2018 and 31 August 2019, and wish their child to be considered for a nursery place for the term following their third birthday, should submit an application by the respective closing date: 13 October 2018 for September 2019 admission.

1 December 2018 - A letter will be posted to you notifying you of the place allocated to your child for September 2019.

Nursery is usually full in the Autumn term, very rarely places are available in Spring. However, on occasion places may become available and to apply for a place parents need to go through the local authority admissions department, not school.

Morning and afternoon places will be allocated by school once we have received the information from the admissions department. Historically, morning places are very popular and governors will make the final decision on the allocation of places. Any parent who then chooses not to accept the place needs to contact the admissions department as soon as possible so their place can be reallocated as Nursery is very popular.
