Admission to Reception 

We encourage prospective parents to visit the school. Formal open mornings take place in the Autumn term where prospective parents tour the school. We are happy to arrange for prospective parents to look round the school at other times and this can be arranged with the school office staff.  

Children born between 1st September 2015 and 31st August 2016 will be eligible for a reception place in September 2020. Applications for Reception in September 2020 must be submitted by 15th January 2020.  Applications have to be made to the Royal Borough of Greenwich and you can find our more information on the application process here.


Nursery Admissions

We offer 52 part time places of 15 hours in the Nursery Classes.

Children can join the Nursery class in the beginning of the term following their third birthday if a place is available. Places are allocated from the waiting list held by the Early Years Foundation Stage Leader following the local authority guidelines for admission. Children are offered 5 sessions of 3 hours during the morning or afternoon. There is no statutory right of appeal for a place in the Nursery class.

Having a place in our Nursery class does not give an automatic entitlement to a place in the Reception class. Parents or carers must apply for a place by completing the Royal Greenwich Common Application Form if they are a Greenwich resident: residents of other boroughs must apply through their local authority. Forms are available from the September before their child is due to start school. Applications can also be made on-line. The local authority allocates places following their admission policy.

Please contact the school office for a Nursery Application form or more information.
