Within Cambridgeshire, admission to school is organised centrally. Cambridgeshire County Council's website contains all the information you need when applying for a school or nursery for your child or appealing if you are unhappy with the school you have been offered. 

You are able to express a preference when choosing a school for your child. This preference may be based on a range of factors individual to your child and family.

Parents and children are encouraged to visit the school and talk with the Headteacher. We do all we can to reassure new children and help them settle very quickly.  Children and parents visit the nursery prior to starting and parents are encouraged to stay and play so that the child feels comfortable and settled.
