Nursery Admissions

How to Apply


Children are eligible to attend Clapham Manor Nursery from the age of 3. No catchment area exists & all applications are welcome.


Applications are available from the school office or you can download the application from the Download section below, complete it and drop it in to the school office. All applications must be submitted to the school office along with the relevant proofs of identity. 


Once you have submitted an application we will invite you to the school to meet us and look around the nursery school if you haven't already.  We will talk about your child and you will have the chance to find out more about us, ask any questions and decide whether Clapham Manor Nursery is the right place for you and your child.  Following the meeting, we will contact you as soon as possible to offer you a place for your child, and ask you to confirm your acceptance. 

To book yourself onto a Nursery Tour, please e-mail with the following information:

  • Tour date
  • Parent/Carer name
  • Child's name
  • Child's date of birth
  • Current provision 
  • E-mail address
  • Contact number


If you would like to know more about our Nursery, please contact Ms C Diacos in the school office: she will be happy to help.


Nursery Admissions Criteria


The school will allocate places to meet the preferences of as many families as possible using the standard admissions criteria as applied by London Borough of Lambeth for school admissions.  We ask parents/carers to indicate a ‘second preference’ on the Nursery Application Form in case we are unable to meet your first preference.  Parents/carers will be informed of their offer as soon as possible.


We operate a waiting list for applicants to whom we have not been able to offer a place.

Please note that demand for places (particularly morning places) is high and places are allocated according to the same criteria as the main school.


Please note that there is no automatic transfer from Clapham Manor Nursery into Clapham Manor Primary School Reception class.  Children attending our Nursery must still apply to Lambeth for a Reception place.
