When spaces allow we are sometimes able to offer places to children throughout the course of the year. The start date will be after the child’s 3rd birthday. A start date will be made as soon as possible after this date for children who are on our waiting list.

The school has a waiting list that parents/carers can register their children on in advance of admission, although it is stressed that putting a name on the waiting list does not guarantee the offer of  a place in school. When the school has received a completed Nursery Admission form, places will be allocated. Parents will be asked to confirm that they are accepting the place and will receive an invitation to a new starters meeting, where they will receive an admission pack, detailing start dates and other relevant information.

Please note that a place in the Nursery class does not guarantee a place in the Reception class.

Admissions to Reception

Prospective parents are invited to visit the school during the autumn term before the in-take year, to see the school in action. All Reception children are admitted during the first week of the autumn term in September.

Parents are informed of the admission arrangements in some detail during visits to the school in the summer term. There is an opportunity during this term for children to visit their new class and teacher and for parents to meet staff and children, view the school, find out about our philosophy and organisation and raise any questions.
