AdmissionsThere are three different types of admission to our school - Nursery Admissions, Reception Admissions and In-Year Admissions.
Nursery Admissions 2019
Thorley Hill has one intake into its Nursery class, which is the September following a child’s third birthday. Entry into the Nursery class in September 2019 will be for those children born between
1st September 2015 and 31st August 2016.
Thorley Hill Primary School and Nursery offers 15 hours Free Early Education from 8.40am – 11.40am daily. We work in partnership with Sunflowers Pre-School, who provide Pre-School Nursery in the afternoon from 11:40am - 3.00pm. The entire provision is based in the same, purpose built building on site so that the children have a seamless transition from one provider to the next.
Allocation of a Nursery place at the school is strictly subject to the applicant’s guarantee that the first 15 hours of Free Childcare Funding will be directed to the school. The remaining 15 hours may be used as required with Sunflowers Pre-School.
Please note - Sunflowers Pre-School is operated independently of the school and parents will need to apply separately for a place with their provision.
Please visit their website for more information: Sunflowers Pre-School
