Admissions

Nursery

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.

Admissions Arrangements Policy

Our admissions for Reception to Year 6 are made through Leicester City Council.

If you wish to apply for a full-time place at Thurnby Mead Primary Academy for you child then you need to submit an on-line application with Leicester City Council, please see below website for more details:
You will be notified by us if the application has been successful and arrangements will take place with the school for a start date.

  1. Children whose home address is in the catchment area of the infant or primary school with a sibling at the school or the linked junior school, who will still be on roll when the applicant starts school.
  2. Children whose home address is outside the catchment area of the infant or primary school with a sibling at the school or linked junior school, who will still be on roll when the applicant starts school.
  3. Children whose home address is in the catchment area of the infant or primary school.
  4. Children whose home address is outside the catchment area of the infant or primary school and who have requested a place.
