The Nursery

We have a 39 place nursery for 3 and 4 year olds, set within the Early Years area of school. We can take up to 39 children for either the morning or afternoon session. There is a waiting list and places are allocated according to the admissions policy. Children’s names can be placed on the waiting list at any time.

Please note that a place in the nursery does not guarantee a place in the main school. An application will need to be made to join the main school.


The School

The school has a normal catchment area; if you live within this area the local authority will generally be able to offer you a place for your child. All applications to join our school need to be made through the local authority based at the Council House, Corporation Street, Derby.


The number of children we plan to have in school is 525 and the planned admission is 75 in each year.


As we are an Academy any appeals for school places will be sent directly to the school.
