Whenever possible, children are offered a school of their parents’ preference. Sometimes, however, there
are more applications for a certain school than there are places available. Whenever this happens places are offered
according to the LA criteria. Please see the online Guide to Primary Schools in Harrow brochure for detailed information.
The Nursery at Newton Farm School is a purpose built, self-contained unit. It accommodates twenty-six children at both of its
daily sessions. Admission to the Nursery does not guarantee a place in the Main School.
The Nursery is considered to be a vital part of our early year’s provision. It is well resourced and popular, serving several other
local schools as well as Newton Farm. Children are provided with a stimulating environment, a variety of educational activities
and first-hand experiences. They are regularly invited to class assemblies and share in the general ethos of the school.
Admission to Nursery School
If your child was born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016, you can apply for admission to the Nursery for the September 2019 intake. Places are offered according to the Harrow Admissions Criteria of ‘children who live the closest’. Application forms are available from the School Office. The closing date for applications is 25th February 2019.
Harrow Council Admission Rules
