Creating The Future


If you would like your child to join our school, please full details of our admissions arrangements below.

The Nursery

We have a 52 place nursery for 3 and 4 year olds, set within the Early Years area of school. We can take up to 26 children for either the morning or afternoon session. There is a waiting list and places are allocated according to the admissions policy. Children’s names can be placed on the waiting list at any time. We offer 15 and 30 hour places and run a Lunchtime Club.


Admission Process

Scientia Academy handles its own admissions for Nursery places, application forms are available from September for the following academic yearly intake. You will be informed of your place on the waiting list as soon as you submit your application form.


In order to qualify for a place in September your child needs to be 3 years old before the 31st of August.


Please note that a place in the nursery does not guarantee a place in the main school. A separate application will need to be made to join the main school.


The School

The school has a normal catchment area; if you live within this area the local authority will generally be able to offer you a place for your child. All applications to join our school in Reception and Year 3 need to be made through the local authority based at:
