Reception (EYFS) Admissions for September 2021

When will my child start school?

Children born between 1st September 2016 and 31st August 2017 start school in September 2021. 

How can I find out more about Eyrescroft before I apply?

Usually we hold open sessions where prospective parents/carers are welcomed to Eyrescroft but in the present climate we are unable to do this.

How do I apply for a place for my child at Eyrescroft?

You can apply for your child’s primary school place via the Local Authority (LA), which is Peterborough City Council. You have the option to choose three schools in order of preference. Applications can be made online from 12th September 2020.
