Children’s names can be registered with the school at any time from birth and should be registered by London Borough of Richmond deadline, to apply on time, which, for entry to the Nursery in September 2022, was 4th March 2022 . It would be helpful if parents would register their interest by the end of January 2022 although early registration is not relevant for admission purposes. Application forms were sent out on 10th February 2022 to parents who have registered a child’s name.   Letters notifying parents of the outcome of their application will be sent out on or after 1st May 2022. It is still possible to make a late application.  The deadline for the acceptance of the offer of a Nursery place will be confirmed in the offer letter.

Starting Nursery

Children whose parents have made a successful application to the Nursery will be allocated their sessions for the 2022-23 academic year in the first half of the Summer Term.   Children joining the Nursery in September are invited to induction sessions ahead of their formal start in Nursery.  These include a session to visit the setting during the day and a 1:1 meeting with the teacher before they begin to attend.

Each year we hold an information evening for new Nursery parents early in the Autumn Term. This is an opportunity to meet other parents and to hear more about the Foundation stage from the Nursery Teacher and the Foundation Stage staff.

Parents are should note that children attending the Nursery at Archdeacon Cambridge’s School will have to reapply for the Reception Class the following year. Applications will be handled on an equal basis with those applying to join the school for the first time.
