Children are usually admitted into our Nursery in the September of the school year in which their 4th birthday falls. At the school’s discretion if places are available a January intake will be considered. Applications for Nursery should be made at the school on the official school application form by the end of February each year. On application for a Nursery place, parents will be asked to state their preference for morning or afternoon sessions.

Successful applicants will be notified by the end of May. Please note, attendance at Broadfield Nursery does not mean that your child will be admitted to Broadfield Reception class. You must still apply for your child’s Reception place.
