Admission to St George’s Nursery 3 – 5 years

Applying for a place in our Nursery


Girls and boys are assessed by the Head of Nursery to ensure that they are ready for activities, play, and learning. Communication and social skills are also assessed.

We take girls and boys from the start of the term of their third birthday. From August 2021 boys who currently attend our ante pre-school class will be able to join the pre-school year. This means boys can stay for the full two-year duration of the Nursery.  In due course, boys can then move on with their friends into our Primary 1 and can stay with us up to the end of Primary 3.


When to apply

You can apply for a place from birth.  Places are offered by date of application, although we do give some priority to siblings. Some places are available for children joining us at P1, however, we do advise joining us in Nursery for children to benefit from a smooth transition from Nursery to P1.

How to apply

Please download and complete the application form below. Please post or email this to our admissions department who will contact you to discuss your application.  There is a non-refundable registration fee of £25 per child to be paid with your application form.

Nursery Admissions Policy

There are two main intakes a year for the nursery: August and January. These are subject to places being available. However, children can also join us at any point through the session, if places are available. For more information please read our admissions policy.

Many of our preschool nursery children move on into Primary 1 and our transition activities are tailored to their needs, however, entry is not automatic. 

A limited number of places are available to children who join us for P1, so acceptance of a place offered in Nursery is strongly advised.
