The closing date for reception admissions for the academic year starting September 2019 has now passed and we have received 183 applications for 90 places. If you have just moved into the area or not applied for any other reason you need to contact Thurrock council immediately. Although refusal letters may state the right of appeal these can only succeed if it can be proved that the correct procedure was not followed; which is extremely unlikely. No other reason is allowed because the law state that there should be no more than 30 children in an infant class.   If you want a place in either our morning or our afternoon nursery class you need to apply to us. We usually have waiting lists for all years except our afternoon nursery.   As an academy we have set our own admission criteria which you can read below. Please note that admission appeals for infant classes cannot take notice of any  special circumstance but can only succeed if it can be proved that the authority did not follow correct procedures in the process. This is highly unlikely. We do not hold special events for prospective parents but it is possible to view the school between 9.30 and 10.30 a.m. by appointment. Please be aware it is now our policy to always place twins in different classes except in nursery.
