'From the seeds of hard work grows a tree of success'



Children are usually admitted into nursery shortly after their third birthday, though there can be a waiting list so parents are recommended to put their child’s name down in good time. Mrs Saaiman, the Nursery Teacher, will contact parents when a place is available.

Main School

Children are admitted into full-time school in the September of the academic year when they will reach 5 years old. Nursery and Reception staff work closely together as the Foundation Stage, before the children are due to come into school; they will pay visits to their future classes to get used to the main school. Just before the children start school, you will be invited to an informal meeting as a group with the Reception teachers. Please come and ask any questions you may have. We are part of Extol Academy Trust and we follow the Middlesbrough Council admissions code and procedures. If you come into school we can give you the necessary admissions form or you can use the link to Middlesbrough Council website
Appeals for a place should be addressed to Mrs Nelson, the Head Teacher.
