School Admission Policy
Admissions to Castleview School and Nursery have one intake per year in September.

Castleview offers a part time, morning or afternoon provision. Children are eligible for admission to the Nursery Class in the September following their third birthday. Applications must be submitted to the school on a nursery application form by the Friday prior to February half term of the year in which your child will be admitted to nursery in the following September. Pupils are admitted to nursery without reference to aptitude or ability. Open days are arranged each term to allow you an opportunity to visit the school and nursery.
