Other Year Groups

For any other applications (including late Reception applications) the parent/carer should contact Lewisham Admissions Team direct on 020 8314 8282 or by email on schooladmissions@lewisham.gov.uk. and obtain an In Year Common Application form from the school office.

If you are applying from another Lewisham school you will first be expected to discuss your reasons for wanting to move with your child’s current Headteacher.

If you live in a borough other than Lewisham, you can still apply but you will need to contact your own Local Authority to complete one of their forms.

Nursery Class

We are very excited to announce that some families will be eligible for 30 hours of Nursery provision per week from September 2017, if you would like to check the criteria for a full-time place please visit GOV.UK 30 Hours Free Childcare 

We plan to offer a combination of full and part-time Nursery places at Marvels Lane.  Part-time Nursery places will consist of Mornings or Afternoons.

Children would usually start nursery in the September after their third birthday and applications should be made directly to the school.  Please click on the link below to view our application form (see Admissions policy for further details).
