We also have eight full time places.  Please see the Nursery terms and conditions for details of charges for full time places.

Admissions to Reception from Nursery

Children are admitted to Reception in the year they become five. Unfortunately children who attend our nursery are not automatically guaranteed a place in reception. Applications for reception classes should be made directly to the London Borough of Barnet on the Common Application Form (CAF) or online.

The London Borough of Barnet usually write to parents in the October of the academic year before your child is due to start to provide details of the application process.  To request an application pack contact the Borough of Barnet Admissions Team at:  school.admissions@barnet.gov.uk.
