Children who are 5 years old between 1st September 2022 and 31st August 2023 and require a school place for September 2022, need to apply before the closing date of 15th January 2022.  National Offer Day is 19th April 2022.

All known Nottinghamshire children eligible to apply will have been sent an application pack from Nottinghamshire County Council.  Children who live outside of Nottinghamshire should contact their local authority for information about applying.

For further information on how to apply and a wide range of useful information regarding the admission process, please visit the Nottinghamshire County Council website here.

Open Event 
We will be holding a further Open Event for parents interested in applying for a Reception place from September 2022 on Wednesday 5th January, 3.30pm to 4.30pm.  Please contact the School Office to book a place.

Admission to Nursery (Foundation 1)
We determine our own admissions for entry to our Nursery.  Places in F1 can be offered the term after a child's 3rd birthday.  All sessions are term time only, following the same term dates as school.  Children progress to full time education during the academic year in which their 5th birthday falls.

Please see below an Application Form for Nursery (Foundation 1).  Please complete and return this to the School Office to keep on file.  We will then contact you nearer to the time of admission.

Please note that if your child has a place in F1, this does not guarantee a place in Reception.  Reception places are to be formally applied for as stated above.
