In-year admisssions

To make an application for a place in any year group during the academic year (an in-year admission) click on the link below. Once an application for an in-year place has been made, children will be placed on their 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 admissions 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.

Nursery places

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

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