Admissions to The Henry Prince First C.E. (C) School & Nursery


Your child can gain a free place at our nursery during the academic year in which he or she becomes three years old. To apply for a nursery place please contact the office. Call 01335 342613 or email Likewise, if you wish to visit our nursery classroom, and the rest of school, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.


The first year of school is called Reception Year. Your child can start full-time in the Reception class in the September of the academic year when they are five. The closing date for applications is normally in January (but see Late Applications below). Being very close to Ashbourne, we accept pupils from both Derbyshire and Staffordshire. Please contact the school if you need any advice or help in applying. (Please note that when applying online you need to search for “The Henry Prince School” and not just Henry Prince School.)
