Welcome to our Admissions page, we are so pleased you are looking to join us.
On this page there is lots of information and guidance about the application process. Moving or starting school is often exciting but can be a daunting process for both children and parents, we will work with you to make the process as smooth and happy as possible. Our office team is very knowledgeable about the admission process so if there is a question you cannot find the answer to here please do call us.
We welcome visits throughout the year. We like to arrange individual visits as well as our planned open mornings. Visits offer parents a one to one conversation with our Head Teacher as well as the opportunity to see our active, happy school during day. Please contact the school office on 0115 9271 54 to book.
Applications to Nursery
Please follow the link below for information about our Nursery admissions.
Applications to School
Admission to school must be made by completing an online application form on the Nottinghamshire County Council website.
If you live in the Nottingham City please contact City Council for further advice.
The School's Published Admission Number (PAN) is 30 in most year groups. We are currently oversubscribed in all Key Stage 1 classes and have a waiting list. Please telephone for more information and advice.
Places are allocated following the criteria, defined in the Nottinghamshire policy.
A place in Nursery is not a guarantee of a place in full time school. Please be aware that over recent years, there have been more children living within the catchment area than spaces available. Applying on time is therefore crucial.
Parents can find a wide range of useful information regarding the admissions process in the Admissions to Schools: Guide for parents on the NCC website.
What you need to know when applying for a place
- Before you apply for your child’s school place at Hawthorne for September 2022, please make sure that your child is the right age – meaning they were born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018 inclusive.
- If you apply online or using a paper form, you will be asked to pick four schools in order of preference.
- One of these schools should be your catchment school, although it does not have to be your top choice.
- The closing date for primary school applications in England is 15th January 2022.
- You will then find out whether your child has a place with us on 16th April 2022.
