Nursery Admissions

Parents applying for a place at Wykeham Primary School Nursery for this academic year (September 2019 - July 2020) need to apply directly to the school. Places are allocated using the criteria stated by Brent Council. Application forms are now available from the school office for any child that is due to start pre-school education.

Pre-school places are available for children who are in the target age group i.e. who were born on or between 1st September 2015 and 31st August 2016. Please feel free to contact the school office if you require any further information. 

Admission to the Nursery does not guarantee a full-time place with the school. A separate application for a place in Reception needs to be made to Brent Council as detailed below.


This year the Local Authority have heard Admission Appeals from several parents who say they were not aware that they needed to make an application until after the offer date. There have been a number of cases where parents who already had a sibling in the school did not apply, so particular emphasis should be made to such parents. The pressure on places means that late applications will most probably miss out on a place at your school, leading to distress, and more appeals. We advice all parents to be aware of the deadlines.
