Admissions Arrangements

As an Academy, our Trust (Cirrus Primary Academy Trust) is the Admissions Authority.

For entry in September 2017:

There are still a few places available for Nursery for 2017 - 18. We would urge you to apply as soon as possible to secure your child's place. Please complete our online form for late applications for Nursery places using the link here and the academy will be in contact with you. 

For entry in September 2018:

Applications for Nursery places for children who will be three years old by 1st September 2018 (born between 1/9/14 and 31/8/15) should apply directly to our Academy by completing our online form which will be available from 1st October 2017. Closing date for applications: 15th January 2018. We do not operate a first-come, first-served system, it is based on our admissions criteria.

Tours of the Academy for September admissions - parents wishing to come and see the Academy action are welcome to join a tour from October to December, led by a senior leader, who will also answer your questions. Tours take around an hour and it is helpful if there are no children present, as they can disrupt the learning of children in the classrooms. Please telephone the office from September 2017 (020 8689 7688) to book a tour, and please mention if you have any access requirements, as some areas have steps.

Our admissions policy for 2018 entry is here: Admissions 2018

In Year Admissions 

Applications for entry to the school for all other year groups (known as mid-term admissions) should be made directly to Croydon Council - link is here. Only when a space becomes available do we rank the list and offer the place to the highest on the list according to our criteria. We are therefore unable to inform those on the list of their position.
