If you are applying for a place in our Nursery, please contact the academy office the year before your child turns three. You will then receive an application the year before your child is of school age so that you can apply for a place. Please be aware that we are often oversubscribed and aim to return your application as soon as possible. For further details, please refer to our academy policy on admissions.
Reception to Year 6
Our admissions for full time education (Reception to Year 6) are made through Leicester City Council.
