How to Apply

Parents can  apply online via HMRC. HMRC will have a dedicated helpdesk to support parents apply if they are unable to apply online and school may also be able to help you with your application.

Eligible parents will be given a code which will be valid for 3 months, parents will be asked to re-confirm their eligibility towards the end of the 3 month period. HMRC will send reminders to parents.

N.B. The offer of a place in Nursery is not a guarantee of a place in School, and your child must be registered separately for admission to each.

Registration forms for admission to Nursery are available from the school office. Please be aware that we will need to see your child's birth certificate at the time of registration
