The closing date for applying for a 4+ place in Reception from September 2014 has now expired; however, there are a limited number of spaces within the school in some year groups, so please contact the Registrar for more information. We are happy to accept mid-year and mid-term starters providing there are places available.
Please see the table below with regard to applying for a place from September 2015.
We also strongly recommend you register as early as possible for a place in Bluebird Nursery as we are now full for the academic year 2014-15 and there is already a waiting list for places from September 2015. Prospective parents are welcome to visit Bluebird every Friday morning, during St Hilda's term time only, between 09.30 and 10.30. Since we can only show round a limited number of visitors, please email the Registrar to confirm your request to visit.
