Admissions to GEMS Didcot Primary Academy
Admissions to the Nursery Class - Acorns
The Academy operates its own admissions for the nursery class. There are 26 spaces in the morning for the three hour session and 26 places in the afternoon. Children are eligible for a place in the nursery the term after they turn 3. To enquire about spaces you can either telephone the school, email the office, come in person or fill in our online form. In order to arrange a visit to the nursery you must book in advance.
Admissions to Reception - Cherry and Hazel Class
Admissions to the reception classes is organised by the County Council. There are 60 available spaces each year. We were over subscribed last year so would advise that you come and visit the school to find out more about us. We are operating open afternoons for prospective parents for September 2017 on Wednesdays. Please book in advance for these sessions as they are limited to 4 parents. Admissions for reception for children born from 1st September 2012 to 31st August 2013 need to apply for a reception place. Pupils within our nursery class also need to apply for a place at the school through the County Council admissions process. Click here to go to the online application.

Please drop us a line if you are looking for a place for your child if they are currently in Year 1 or 2 for this academic year. We have a few spaces in Year 1 and 2 currently and may be able to admit your child immediately. We are unable to 'hold' spaces if you are moving on to the Great Western Park in the future, but do keep in touch and we will do what we can to help.
If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.
