Establishing lifelong learning: rooted in knowledge, enriched by experience
Applying for Nursery
APPLICATION FOR ADMISSION TO NURSERY IN SEPTEMBER 2021
Due to COVID-19 we will be unable to provide in-person tours of the school for prospective parents this year. We will be holding online nursery tours on the following dates:
Thursday 21st January 4.00pm
Tuesday 26th January 9.30am
You can sign up for one of the sessions here.
The Nursery Education in Kingston upon Thames booklet provides you with full information about the different types of nursery education available as well as when and how to apply for a nursery place.
Starting Nursery in September 2021
Children born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018. Our nursery has one intake per year in September and your child must be three years old by 31 August to be considered.
Alexandra School will be offering 78 Universal Entitlement places (15 hours per week). These will be Monday – Friday, 39 AM places 8:45-11:45 or 39 PM places 12:30 – 15:30). There is a space on our application form to indicate your preferred session; although this is for our information and cannot be guaranteed.
Extended Nursery Sessions
Alexandra Primary School is keen to offer as many places as possible to local children who want a place at our nursery for 15 hours per week (the ‘universal entitlement’). It therefore does not set aside any extended nursery session places. However, if we discover that we have spare places in either the morning or afternoon nursery sessions once we have satisfied our universal entitlement demand, we will then offer these spare places as extended sessions. These extended sessions are expected to begin from Monday 27 September 2021 once all nursery children have settled into school. Please download the Extended nursery sessions Sept 2021 document below for more details.
Applications for Alexandra School Nursery are dealt according to the rules stipulated in the RBK Nursery 2021 booklet.
The closing date for the Nursery applications is 5th March 2021.
All Local Authority nurseries will send out offer letters by early May 2021 (exact date TBC).
To apply for a nursery place, you must submit a paper form to the school. Please contact the school directly for an application form or download the form at the bottom of this page. Please mention any siblings who will be attending Alexandra Primary School in September 2021.
Please contact Sarah Walters in the school office if you have any queries or need any assistance.
