Applying for a school place for your child

Here at Underhill we offer childcare and education for children aged from 3 through to 11. There are 2 separate admission procedures for nursery and reception. Below you will find information on each of these stages and how to apply at each stage.

Nursery

 

We are lucky to have a nursery that provides childcare for 3 and 4 year olds. All 3 and 4 year olds are entitled to 15 hours of free nursery provision per week. This can be taken as 5 morning or 5 afternoon sessions.

Some 3 and 4 year olds are entitled to 30 hours free childcare. We currently offer a limited number of places. We are also able to help you with checks on your eligibility. We are looking to be able to offer these places soon.

We also offer the opportunity to pay for extra sessions, and access to the extended day which includes breakfast and after school club.

If you would like to register your interest for our nursery, arrange a viewing or apply for a place for your 3 or 4 year old please contact the school office on 020 8449 2423 or email us at office@underhill.barnetmail.net.
