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.​
