Two Year Olds Admissions

Some children are eligible for a free place in our provision for Two Year Olds. If you think your child may be eligible for a free 2 year old place call in at the school office and we will be able to check if your child is eligible and a letter will then be issued to bring to us if we have a space available. 

We also have a couple of spaces available for those who do not qualify for the free provision. For costings please contact our school office.

When you have completed an application form, this will be placed on our waiting list and we will contact you as your child turns 2, if there is a place available.


Nursery Admissions

If your child is due to turn three or four and you would like them to join our Nursery, then please complete an application form at the school office. As your child turns three or four, we will contact you to see if you are still interested in a place, if there is one available. We also offer fulltime places for children. For costings please contact our school office.

For further information please look on the Bolton Council Website.
