The school follows the Tameside Admissions Procedures. Children are admitted into full time education in the September of the school year in which they become 5 years old.

sent out first class on Friday 10th March 2017

The Nursery takes children when they are 3 years old on a part time basis. It is important to note that admission to the nursery does not give automatic admission to full time school. An application form must be completed. Application forms can be obtained from the school office. We have adopted the TMBC policy for nursery admissions. Click on the link below to view.
