Admissions

Thank you for showing an interest in applying for a place at our school!

Applying for a place at school can be a little confusing and we hope this page will be of help...

 

There are four distinct  phases for admissions:

  • Entry to our afternoon playgroup provision called Acorns, for children who are 2 - 3 years old
  • Entry to our Nursery Class for children who have turned 3 years old by the start of the academic year in September
  • Entry to our Reception Class for children who have turned 4 years old by the start of the academic year in September (even if your child is already in our Nursery Class you will need to apply via the local authority for a place in our Reception Class)
  • In year admissions from children once they have started statutory school either elsewhere in the UK or from abroad.

 

Please click below to find out how to apply in each of these circumstances.

 

Please note if you have missed any of the deadlines mentioned you can still apply for a place at our school. Please call the school office on 020 8940 7911 for assistance with this.
