Our Academy opened in September 2016 and we are now open to pupils in Nursery, Reception, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3 and 4.
Applications for places at the Nursery are managed by the Academy and applications for places in Reception are managed by Tameside Council on our behalf. The Academy is open to Nursery aged pupils who will be 4 years old between 1st September and 31st August annually. Our Nursery universal provision is 15 hours per week term time only and these sessions are 8:45 – 11:45am each day. There are also 30 hour weekly sessions for those families who are eligible for 30hrs funding. If you are looking for a place for this year or for future years please contact the Academy office on 0161 368 5962.
