Please refer to the individual school websites for information about their oversubscription criteria, which is the criteria we have to apply to applications should we have more applications than places.
If you wish to make an "in-year" application to start Nursery with us before September 2023, we can accept applications for Nursery places at any point during the school year. For children who were born between 1 September 2018 and 31 August 2019, please complete this online form and then call the school office on 01442 871231 to discuss the arrangements for your child starting with us.
