Parents may register a child, with the school, when he/she has reached the age of two years. Children are admitted to the Nursery/Foundation Stage 1 after their 3rd birthday, if spaces are available. Admission to the Nursery does not guarantee a place in the main school (Foundation Stage 2) at the age of 4 years.
If your child is under 3 please bring their birth certificate to the school office where they will be placed onto the nursery waiting list.
When a place becomes available you will be contacted by the school.
Reception to Year 6
Our admissions for full time education (Reception to Year 6) are made through Leicester City Council.
To apply for a place at our school for your child in any of these year groups, you will need to submit an online application to Leicester City Council. Please see their website for details:
