Nursery Admissions

Ashwell Primary School is its own admission authority for nursery places.

Children are normally admitted to our nursery class in the September after their third birthday, subject to a place being available. The school is responsible for allocating Nursery places and we use the HCC rules for allocating school places.

HCC admission rules

Places in our nursery class are not restricted to pupils who will subsequently be attending Ashwell Primary School.

There are 26 places available in our Nursery – mornings only Monday – Friday (children attend all 5 mornings).  Please note: the offer of a place in the Nursery does not guarantee admission to the Reception Class.
