1. JOINING PRE-SCHOOL
Applying for a place at Pre-School
All children starting in September 2023 will be notified, and a place confirmed by 1st May 2023.
As soon as your child becomes 3, if we have a space, your child can begin in our pre-school.
As long as places are available, children may start at any point of the year, but it is more likely a place will be secured by getting on the waiting list as early as possible.

How do I apply for a place on the waiting list?
To apply for a place, the 'Place Application Form' must be returned to the school office.
Once you have submitted your 'Place Application Form' and 'Session Request Form' and a place has been confirmed, you will be asked to complete our more detailed 'Admission Data Collection Form' and complete a declaration as to the free (FEEE) childcare sessions you intend to use each term.
Before a place is confirmed we will need to see your child's birth certificate and proof of address (Council Tax statement).
We will contact you if a place becomes available.
