The Admissions team are here to support you in this journey of choosing the right school for your son or daughter. Our aim is to ensure you get an insight into what The Elms has to offer and we look forward to organising your visit to look around our wonderful nursery and school.

The Admissions Process:

Contact Us – Admission to the school is open all year round and we are now accepting applications for entry to the school in September 2019. 

Visit us –  We welcome families for a personal tour of the school, to give you a full insight into life at The Elms and what our wonderful school has to offer. Meet our Head, along with members of the Leadership team, and see our school in action. Please contact Admissions to arrange your visit. Tours are available during the school week between 8.30am and 3.30pm. We also have a number of open events throughout the year; for more information on these, please see the section entitled ‘open days & visits’. 

Register your Child – Complete our registration form and send in with your registration fee (£50 for The Elms Nursery & £60 for The Elms School) to confirm you would like to apply for a place for your child at The Elms. 

Bring your Child in for a Taster Day – Once registered we would love to invite your child to join us for a taster session. Children considering joining Pre-School or Reception will be invited in for a morning stay and play session in The Elms Pre-School. This is a fun and relaxed opportunity to experience life at the school and have an introduction to our specialist teaching. 



For entry to Reception at The Elms, children are assessed for entry by one of our Reception Teachers and will also have the opportunity to experience a number of exciting adult-led activities within our early year’s unit, as well as meeting new friends and enjoying the range of facilities inside and outside the classroom. 

Reception stay and play sessions are available on the following dates:

Tuesday 22nd January 2019

Friday 25th January 2019

The sessions run from 8.45am – 1.00pm (morning snack and lunch are included)

Parents are then invited to further explore the Reception classrooms and join the Head for refreshments to find out about starting in Reception at The Elms. 


For entry to Infants and Juniors, children will be invited to join us a taster day and assessments. For entry to Years 1 - 4, your child will join us for a full school day and will be assessed as part of the classroom lessons.  

For Year 5 and Year 6 entry, your child will be invited in for a Taster Day and will also be required to take an online verbal and non-verbal assessment. The assessments taken for Year 5 and Year 6 entry will also determine a reserved place at Trent College.
