We offer full time places to eligible working parents. Non-eligible parents can pay a top-up fee of £70 per week to increase from part-time to full-time hours five days per week.

Admissions criteria

The school will consider applications for the beginning of each academic year for children who have turned 3 prior to 1st September of the academic year in following order: 

1. Looked after children and those who ceased to be looked after children because they have been adopted, or because they became subject to a residence order, child arrangements order or a special guardianship order.    
2. Children with a brother or sister currently attending the school and who will still be at the school when the child is admitted. 
3. Other children in order of straight line distance from home to school as measured by Wandsworth Council's Geographical Information System.

For children who turn three during an academic year –if places are available, pupils may be offered a part-time place in the Nursery in the term after their third birthday. We will have an additional intake in January if space is available. 

Admissions criteria

If there are more applications than places within the admissions groups above Chesterton will admit pupils in the priority order (1 to 3) as set out above.

Starting dates for Nursery children

Nursery children have a staggered intake to ensure children settle quickly and have a stress free start to their Early Years education.
Prior to their child starting, families are expected to attend an All about Me meeting with the Nursery teacher.
