We are a school maintained by London Borough of Newham which means they are the admission authority for this school.

Nursery Admission

Nursery Information

We accept children’s’ names for the nursery waiting list from their second birthday, however we can never guarantee a place. This is not ‘first come, first served’ but we try to offer all children three terms in nursery before they start school. Please note that a place at our nursery will not gain automatic entry into our school.

An online application form is available here. To accompany your application we require a proof of address and a copy of your child’s birth certificate. We will need to see these documents once your child has been offered a place. If you have any queries then please call us on 020 7476 5336.​
