Admission to the Nursery
Admission to the Nursery is normally open to children resident within our catchment area. It is on an ‘oldest first’ basis. Children’s names can be put onto a waiting list at the Nursery or the school office.

Transferring to secondary school
Children transfer to a number of local secondary schools including: Redcar Academy, Rye Hills and Sacred Heart School. We value our transition work with local schools and organise a programme of activities and visits to ensure that we do everything in our power to ensure a smooth and successful transition for our pupils.
