Nursery Admissions

We accept children's names for the nursery waiting list from their second birthday. We cannot guarantee you a place but we do try to offer all children at least three terms in the nursery before entry to our school.

We offer children a morning only nursery placement or an afternoon only placement. 

If you would like to put your child's name on our nursery waiting list we suggest you do this after their second birthday. Please come to the Family Centre at anytime during school hours.

Starting school for the first time

In Newham, children start primary school (Reception) in the school year during which they have their fifth birthday. Entry is in September only.

To request a place for your child at our school, you must contact one of Newham’s Service Centres. Details of where you can find your nearest one can be found at:

In the term before your child's admission is due, you will hear from Newham to let you know whether a place is available or not. If you are offered a place, write or call to accept it as soon as possible. The school will contact all parents of new reception children with the arrangements for a reception entry meeting.
