Admissions, Fees and Funding Information



We hope that you find the pages about the nursery and the main school helpful; however no amount of browsing can replace a visit to the nursery where I am confident you will agree that there is a real 'community' feel to our whole school. 


Please contact either Brenda Boulton or Samantha Frost in the school office who will be delighted to arrange a visit for you. Alternatively complete the admission forms below and return them to us.

Only a valid eligibility code will guarantee the funding of the additional 15hrs under this entitlement and it is the parent(s)/carer(s) responsibility to provide this. The school will not hold a place for a child whose parent/carer is still ‘applying’ or ‘re-applying’ or has lost their eligibility code.

When the grace period or code lapses the place will revert to a universal 15 hour place. If the

place is filled by the time the code is refreshed/renewed a further 30hr place can be refused. The

financial sustainability of the school is essential and therefore we reserve the right to fill any

vacant spaces.
