Nursery admission arrangements

Many of our children join Springfield in the Nursery, aged three. A place in the Nursery does not guarantee a place in the main school but children meeting the Local Authority’s entry requirements will move on to Reception where they will be joined by children new to the school. Admissions to Nursery are provided by the school and there is no need to contact the Local Authority. 

If you would like to arrange to visit us please call the school office on 020 800 9007, or click here to email the school admissions officer, Doreen Broomfield.
