If your child is aged 3 and becomes aged 4 between 1st September and 31st August, you can apply for a place at our school nursery. All applications to our school nursery are made directly to us. The local authority is not involved in the nursery application process.

Confirmation of places at the Nursery will be sent on Monday 15th March 2021.
- We have our own application form, which is the only method for applying for a nursery place for your child.
- This form must be completed by the parents/carers and returned directly to the school.
- All parents considering applying under the 'worship' criterion must also submit a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) and Confirmation of Worship Form (CoW), by the closing date.
