Admission Arrangements

We follow the City of York Council Admissions policies for Nursery and school.



We are very fortunate to have a large Nursery and children are currently admitted to our Nursery 3 times during the academic year. Children are eligible for a part time Nursery place from the term after their 3rd birthday.


Nursery Admission Dates:

Autumn Entry - children who were 3 years old between 1st April and 31st August

Spring Entry - children who were 3 years old between 1st September and 31st December.

Summer Entry - children who were 3 years old between 1st January and 31st March.


Prior to admission, children have the opportunity to visit the Nursery with their parent/carer on several occasions and members of our Nursery staff team make home visits to ensure smooth transitions between home and school.


Children are usually admitted to Nursery in small groups over a 2 week period, this we believe, gives a positive start to education for our youngest children.


Main school

Children are usually admitted into main school during the year in which they become 5.


Registering your Child

Parents may choose the school they wish their child to attend, however we can no longer guarantee that children who live locally will automatically receive a place at our school. Please visit our policy page where you can view our admissions policy. It is vital to our forward planning that parents register their child for Nursery or main school as early as possible.


Admissions to school are dealt with by

The City of York Council Access Team.
