How to apply for a Nursery place 


We will be offering Nursery places in September 2022 to children who were born between 1 September 2018 and 31 August 2019.

If you would like to apply for a Nursery place, please complete the application form at the school office.


Please note: Attendance at our Nursery does not guarantee a place in Reception the following year.  Parents must apply to the Local Authority (Birmingham City Council) for a Reception place as below.


How to apply for a Reception place

Parents who are seeking a Reception class place in September 2022 for a child born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018, must apply online to Birmingham City Council Local Authority.  We expect the process to begin soon and we are waiting for BCC to publish details.  As soon as we have this information, we will publish it on this website.


School age - when can your child start school?

Reception is the first year of primary school. It comes after Nursery, but before Year 1.

Children in Birmingham can go to school (Reception) in the September after their 4th birthday.


When to apply

Parents can apply for a place in the Autumn of the year before their child turns 4 years of age. It’s important that you apply for a place as soon as possible:

  • attendance at a nursery class doesn’t give a child automatic priority for a place
  • don’t wait until your child is 5 years old, or your preferred school may already be full

You can list up to 3 preferred schools when you apply.



In-Year Admissions

We currently admit 60 pupils in Reception to Year 6. If you wish your child to move to Brookfields Primary in the middle of a school year then you must contact the school office on 0121 675 1897. Pupils who join at other times during the year will attend a meeting with Mrs Kacem, Pastoral lead, where a start date will be agreed.

Secondary School Admissions (for Year 6 Pupils)

You must submit an online application form by 31 October 2022.

You will receive an email confirmation that you have submitted your application form. Please ensure to check your SPAM or Junk folder.  It is important that you check your confirmation email to make sure everything is correct. You can amend your preferences right up to 11.59 pm on the closing date (31 October 2022). Click here for details on how to apply.


Waiting lists will be created three weeks following the offer of school places. Your child’s name will be automatically added to the waiting list for any higher preference schools than the one offered (unless your child did not achieve a high enough score in the grammar school selection test). Being on a waiting list does not mean that a place will become available.

Grammar School Admissions

If your child will be sitting the selective test for entry to grammar schools, we strongly recommend that you do not submit your online application until you know the results of your child's grammar school test. The test results for The Grammar Schools in Birmingham will be available before 31 October 2022. We are aware that with Grammar Schools in other Local Authorities you may not receive your test scores after the closing date to apply for your preferences (31 October 2022). However, online applications must be submitted by 31 October 2022 to be classed as on time.  Therefore, please ensure that if you are applying for a Grammar School in another Local Authority you include it as a preference on your application.

Nursery Places

We currently offer Nursery places in September to pupils who are 3 years old by the 31st August. Please look at the following link to check your entitlement.


If you would like to apply for a Nursery place, please complete the appropriate application form at the school office.


Please note: Attendance at Nursery does not guarantee a place in Reception and parents must still apply by the LA closing dates as published on their website. Parents requiring assistance to apply for places should ask at the school office.
