Admissions

We admit children according to the policy agreed by Tower Hamlets Education Authority. The school has a maximum intake of 45 pupils each academic year. The number of pupils able to attend the school is 310 plus 35 full-time and 18 part-time in Nursery. The school is organised into one and a half form entry – one full year group class and a mixed year group class. There is no automatic transfer from nursery to reception class – parents and carers will need to apply centrally as below.

The policy and arrangements for admission to the school are set out in the Local Authority’s school admissions booklet ‘Starting School in Tower Hamlets’, which can be accessed on the Tower Hamlets website. A paper copy can be obtained from the Local Authority’s Pupil Admissions Team on tel: 020 7364 5006.
