As an Academy, our Trust (Cirrus Primary Academy Trust) is the Admissions Authority.
For entry in September 2018:
Please note that the closing date for application for Nursery and Reception admissions for September 2018 has now passed. You may still apply, but your application will be considered as a ‘late application’.
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 – full details are here – Nursery admissions 2018. Closing date for applications was: 15th January 2018. We do not operate a first-come, first-served system, it is based on our admissions criteria.
Applications for Reception places for children who will be four years old by 1st September 2018 (born between 1/9/13 and 31/8/14) should apply through the Sutton Council website from September 2017 here. Closing date for applications was: 15th January 2018.
Applications for entry to the academy for the current Reception and for all other year groups (known as mid-term admissions) should be made directly to Sutton 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.
Mid-term admissions into Nursery are managed by the academy and not the Council – please click here for the Nursery Mid-term Admissions form (please do not use this to apply for September 2018).
Tours of the Academy for September admissions – parents wishing to come and see the Academy action are welcome to join a tour from September 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 (020 8669 7588) to book a tour, and please mention if you have any access requirements.
Our admissions policy for 2018 entry is here: Admissions 2018
