How to apply for a Nursery Place at Oasis Academy Bank Leaze

If you would like to apply for a place in our Nursery, please email or call 01275 894580. We will send you out an application form to complete and nursery leaflet. The application form needs to be returned with the child’s original birth certificate. We recommend you apply as soon as possible after the child’s second birthday.

Once we receive your application form, we will send you an Application Acknowledgement Form with details of your child’s start date.  We will then be in touch nearer to the time with details of the nursery induction sessions and further information about our wonderful nursery class.

We have three entry points across the year September, January and April for children who are 3 years and above.
