Heyes Lane Primary School has a 52 place Nursery class, as well as provision for children up to the age of 11. Please see the appropriate section below for details of our admissions arrangements to our Nursery and Reception classes, or for in-year admissions.

Choosing the right school can be a daunting decision, and it is important that you make the right choice for the needs of your child. We would encourage parents who are considering sending their child to Heyes Lane to attend our Open Morning in the Autumn Term and get a feel for what a fabulous school it is.
