Nursery admissions


If your child was born between 1st September 2018 and 31st August 2019 you can apply for a Nursery Class place for September 2022.  Please use this link to take you to the Nursery Admissions page of the London Borough of Hounslow London Borough of Hounslow Nursery Admissions or collect a paper copy of the form from the School Office.  The deadline for applications is 6th May 2022.

At Cavendish Primary School we have a morning Nursery with twenty-six places, which runs for five mornings a week, Monday to Friday from 8.50am to 12.00pm. Children are eligible for a free, part-time Nursery place the September before their fourth birthday.

Each year we hold open mornings for prospective parents, when parents are invited to look round the school, meet the Headteacher and other teaching staff, collect application forms and related documents, as well as ask any questions about the school or the admissions process.

All Hounslow’s infant and primary schools have nursery classes and all enquiries and applications for Nursery places should be made direct to the individual schools.

When making your application, you will need to consider carefully the admissions process and the oversubscription criteria. Application forms can be obtained either from schools or from the London Borough of Hounslow’s admissions department. It is very important to ensure that you return your application form to the school you are applying for by the deadline. Late applications severely limit your chances of receiving the school of your choice. The address you provide on the application form must be the address at which your child normally resides and you will need to provide proof of address along with your application. It is a criminal offence to give a false address and the school reserves the right to withdraw any offer made on the basis of inadequate, inaccurate or deliberately misleading information.

If a Nursery receives more applications than it has to offer, the places will be offered strictly in accordance with the London Borough of Hounslow’s oversubscription criteria, which are available on Hounslow’s website. You are strongly advised to ensure that you fully understand the admissions process and the oversubscription criteria before making your application for a place at any school, although please feel free to contact the school if you have any queries.

You are advised to apply to more than one school, but to consider the admissions criteria when making these applications. Please note that an offer of a Nursery place in a school does NOT guarantee a place in the subsequent Reception class, nor does it guarantee a place for siblings.

Please telephone the school on 020 8994 6835 for details of open mornings, Nursery application forms or for any other information and we will be pleased to help.
