We would normally offer prospective parents the opportunity to visit the school for organised open sessions during October and November, but due to the current restrictions because of COVID-19 we are doing things differently this year and are not able to offer physical tours. Instead we have produced a short film for you to view.

For advice on how to apply for a place in year groups other than Reception (an in-year admission) click the link below. Once an application for an in-year place has been made, children will be placed on the relevant year group waiting list according to our published admissions criteria.  Our waiting lists are maintained by Croydon Council School Admissions.  Children on waiting lists are ranked according to the priority they have under our published admission criteria. Waiting lists do not operate on a ‘first come first served’ basis; if new applicants have a higher priority, they will be ranked higher than those who have been on the list for some time.



We do not have a nursery attached to St Peter's Primary School.  You can find out information about Nursery and Pre-Schools here.

You can also search for childcare providers such as childminders here.
