Admission to Nursery

Children normally join the nursery when they are three years old and parents are advised to register their child for the waiting list at the age of two. Deciding on the right placement for nursery and school is important and we do everything we can to help. Visits to the nursery and main school are welcome and can be arranged by telephone. Our nursery has places for twenty-six children in the morning and twenty-six in the afternoon. 

Please find attached our Nursery Admissions Policy and Waiting List Form for the Nursery

Admission to Reception Class 

Children are admitted to a Reception class in the September of the year in which they are five and are determined by Reading Borough Council Admissions Department. Children will have had the chance to visit their new class and meet their teacher on a number of occasions. There are often more applications that places in Reception Class and attending Nursery does not give your child priority for admission.

Admission to Main School

All In-Year Admissions are arranged by Reading Borough Council Admissions Team and applications for a school place must be made to the parent’s/carer’s home local authority. Please apply at the Civic Centre, Queen’s Walk, Reading RG1 7AE or telephone 0118 937 2601. Click here to be directed to RBC Admissions.
