Getting a place for reception class
Attendance at a maintained nursery does not guarantee that your child will be able to go on to reception class in the same school.
If you want more information about the likelihood of securing a school place in a particular school, please contact the school itself or Pupil Services at the Town Hall, telephone (020) 8871 7316.
Who processes primary and nursery applications
Primary applications are co-ordinated centrally in the Children's Services Department, and you can apply for a place in a Reception Class in September 2013.
