Admission to Nursery 2024

Please read the Ready for Nursery in Tower Hamlets booklet for useful information on the admission process.

When do children start nursery?

Children will usually start nursery in the September following their third birthday. It is possible for eligible children to access a funded nursery place from the beginning of the term after their third birthday.

Are part-time or full-time places available? 

Both part-time (15 hours per week) and full-time (30 hours per week) places are available at Tower Hamlets nurseries.

When can children start nursery?

If your child was born between 1 September 2020 and 31 August 2021, and you wish to apply for a nursery place for September 2024, you must complete an online application by 16 February 2024 through the E-admissions website.

Reception school admissions: starting reception in 2024/25

Pupils usually start primary school in the September following their fourth birthday. If your child was born between 1 September 2019 and 31 August 2020, this will be from September 2024. You must make an online application for a reception place, even if your child is already attending the school's nursery. 

There is no automatic right of transfer from the nursery class to the reception class in the same school, and attending a nursery class does not give any priority for admission to the reception class at the same school.

You must apply via the e-admissions portal.

The closing date for making applications is 15 January 2024.
