Admissions (General)

Nursery and Reception 2018-2019: the closing date was January 15, 2018.
Offer letters for Nursery have already gone out. Reception National Offer Day was on April 18.

Hampden Gurney is a very popular primary school. We are heavily over-subscribed and currently have waiting lists in every year group.

Places are not awarded based on the length of time a child has been on the waiting list. For instance, if a family moves into the area and fulfils a criterion higher on our Admission Policy, then this takes precedent.

We hold one Open Morning each year during the Autumn term, where prospective parents and their children can come and visit our school. It is usually held in October or early November.

As a State V.A. school, admissions to classes are based on a child’s date of birth, and runs from the 1st September to 31st August. The school year always starts in September and runs through to the end of July.
