Our Admissions Policy is applied when processing Nursery applications.
We offer 30 hour Nursery places or 15 hour morning Nursery places. We do have an additional January and April intake for Nursery, pupils are eligible to start at Nursery the term after they turn 3 years old, if there are places available. Please note that unfortunately attendance at the Nursery does not guarantee a place in Reception at our school.
Applying for a Reception place
For Reception admissions we follow the co-ordinated admissions process managed by Tameside Council. You can apply for a place from November

Once the closing date for applications has passed, the online system will close for 2 weeks to enable all on time applications to be processed. The online system will re-open two weeks after the closing date to accept late applications. Late applications will only be dealt with after all of those that have been received on time.
We are then notified in April of pupils allocated a place for the following September. Please do not hesitate to contact the school office if you have any further questions.
