Admission to the Nursery Class

Admissions to our Nursery are managed by the school, not the local authority.  Application forms are available from the school office and have to be submitted by a date in December, for admission in the following September.

Parents are notified in January as to whether they have places.  Priority is given to those pupils who will have a brother or sister in school when they are admitted and other applications are considered on a 'First come, first served' basis.

 

Please contact school regarding Nursery admissions as spaces may be available.
